Paul George and Devin Booker got into a pretty heated altercation midway through the fourth quarter of Sunday's game.

While we don't know the specifics of what was said, we do know that a lot of expletives were spewed, and both sides seemed pretty ticked off about it.

Following the game, George shared a bit about what happened, explaining that he's trying to set the record straight on folk who continue to look to the past,

“I had a tough year last year. People think it’s sweet that I was down. I didn’t hear none of this in my 10 years in the league, but last year… People living on that last year and I gotta answer to that. I’m ready to compete. I’m back.”

PG is probably the NBA's most scrutinized player right now. A disappointing performance last season was no doubt a huge reason why the Clippers failed to meet expectations.

In a new season, with a new roaster, and increased motivation, PG is hoping to make amends and show the world he is capable of taking his team to a title.
