Paul George Says He Gets Criticized More Than Other NBA Superstars

Paul George has been amazing in this year's playoffs. The real 'Playoff P' is balling out this year, averaging 27.2 points, 9.7 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 1.1 steals.

Last night, he led the Clippers to 116-102 victory in Phoenix, putting up 41 points, 13 rebounds, 6 rebounds and 3 steals on a very efficient 75% shooting from the field, 50% from the three-point territory and a perfect 8/8 from the charity stripe as they extend the series back to Game 6 at Staples Center.

George is leading most of the categories in the playoffs.

The Los Angeles Clippers made the conference finals for the first time in franchise history, and they did that without Kawhi Leonard. The Clippers has won 4 of their last 7 games in the playoffs with Leonard not playing.

PG13 even joined an elite company of players, scoring 20 points or more on his 18 playoff games.

The Clippers star is absolutely clutch on elimination games this season.

Asked him if he believes he gets singled out for every criticism tied to his performances in the NBA playoffs.

"I do. And it's the honest truth," he told reporters after his team's 116-102 victory over the Phoenix Suns in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. "It's a fact. But I can't worry about that. It comes with the job, I guess." George said
