Paul George keeps the Clippers alive in the conference finals

The Los Angeles Clippers have fought tooth and nail and have won the chance to fight another day. Game 6 of the series will be this Wednesday in Los Angeles, and the Clippers will want to retake the home-court advantage against the Suns.

For the LA team, this is the 3rd time they've faced elimination this playoffs and have escaped it. Last night it was thanks to an incredible Paul George who scored 41 points, had 13 rebounds, and 6 assist. The Clippers are not going to go down without a fight, and with home-court advantage, the chance for a game 7 is very real.

Paul George has scored at least 20 points in the last 18 games that he has played in this playoffs, becoming one of only four players with a 20 plus point streak. Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, and Michael Jordan are the only other 3 players to have such a streak. George had solid help from his team with Marcus Morris, who had 22 points, Reggie Jackson 23, and Cousins with 15.

The Suns had in Devin Booker their best players with 31 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists, while Chris Paul had 22 points. Unfortunately for the Phoenix team, it was not enough to stop the Clippers from taking this game home. If the Suns manage to win on Wednesday, this would be their first NBA finals since 1993.

Paul George and the Clippers mentality

"We wasn't going to back down. We wasn't just going to throw in the towel, the fact of the matter is, they've got to beat us. It's one game for us, and it's one game for them. One game they beat us, we're out. One game, we continue our season on. We just had that mentality to start the game off." said George after the game.

The Clippers or the Suns will meet the winner of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Atlanta Hawks and the Milwaukee Bucks.
