Morning after Christmas last year, Clippers were 17-15 and 5th in West … but lost Paul George to a torn ligament in right elbow.
Morning after Christmas this year, Clippers are 19-15 and 5th in West … and have a mostly healthy roster for the final week of 2022. – 3:14 PM

De’Anthony Melton was instrumental defensively in order to rally and win on Friday. He received praise for his defense of him on Paul George. #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/2022/12/24/six… Street @SixersWire1:01 PM

Paul George has talked about this before this season, and brought it up again that he feels the next step in Clippers’ “evolution” is putting teams away. Tonight’s lost lead followed Wed., when Charlotte got back in the game, too, despite what was once a huge Clips lead. pic.twitter.com/EyBLGdujbi11:08 PM

More on this storyline

Law Murray: John Wall is inactive tonight. That usually means Terance Mann shifts to backup point guard. We’ll see what that means for the rest of the rotation. Clippers went all bench at times Wednesday and kept Paul George and Kawhi Leonard together at all times. -Street Twitter @LawMurrayTheNU / December 23, 2022

Paul George: I had my serious journey of losing the mental battle during the NBA season in the pandemic bubble in Orlando. My whole life, I had faced mental challenges and had always felt like I had won that battle, but here I was in the bubble losing. I didn’t know where to go, what to do or how to cover. It was an experience that I had never had. It was tied into being shut off from the world, isolated and not being able to sleep, along with reading social media posts and seeing hateful comments that started to affect me. -Street USA Today Sports / December 22, 2022
