Paul George has returned to action in great style, as the forward started playing the same way he did last season, where he became a finalist for the MVP award. He made his debut with the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday after missing the first 11 games of the campaign as he recovered from offseason surgeries on both shoulders.
PG-13 made history with his 33 points in Thursday’s loss and 37 in Saturday night’s 150-101 win over the Atlanta Hawks, scoring the most points in a Clippers home debut with his 37 and 70 in total in only 44 minutes.

This is great news for the Clips and, as expected, people want to know what’s the secret behind these performances. When asked about it, George’s response was short and simple:
“I got new shoulders. I can’t say nothing else to that, I got new shoulders. And they haven’t been this healthy in a long time.”

He’s been just fine for the Clippers, playing great defense and showing his offensive skills every time he stepped on the court. Los Angeles have yet to line up both PG and Kawhi Leonard at the same time, but that will have to wait.
In the meantime, their fans can enjoy Paul doing his thing and scoring points like their nothing every single night.
