Clippers’ Paul George anticipates ‘fun’ reunion against Russell Westbrook


first_imgLOS ANGELES — All that offseason shaking and baking was the recipe for a liberal mix of delicious new matchups around the NBA – including Friday’s in L.A., pitting Paul George and Russell Westbrook against each other for the first time since they were Oklahoma City Thunder teammates.“It’ll be fun,” George said Friday at shootaround.Via offseason trades, George, a Palmdale native, landed in Southern California with Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers, and Westbrook was teamed with fellow Angeleno James Harden in Houston, with the Rockets.Although the George-Westbrook partnership didn’t advance past the first round of the Western Conference playoffs in the two seasons it lasted, it otherwise worked in a lot of ways – especially for George. “I knew it was going to work. Russ is a winner. Russ wants to win, Russ does whatever it takes to win,” George said. “My time playing with him, Russ don’t really have an ego. He puts his ego to the side. He allowed me to be myself, he allowed me to be comfortable. And I had one of the best (seasons) of my career while playing alongside him. Russ is a heckuva teammate.”He’s made Houston a heck of a lot more dangerous, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.“He adds pace. I said that right away. when that trade happened,” Rivers said. “People were like, ‘This won’t fit.’ I was like, ‘Oh my god, Houston’s gonna have pace now.’ This is what the league’s coaches have always feared. They’re already a good offensive team, now add pace to that, that makes them tougher, and he’s done it.”George knows about that, too, he said, remembering having to alter even his off-the-court habits to keep up with Westbrook.“I had to change my diet, I had to change my conditioning,” George said. “Coming from the East to the West was a big adjustment, but then playing alongside Russ was an even bigger adjustment, just because he’s a blur. He gets up and down the court so fast and he creates action so fast that you got to be ready.”SHAMET UPDATE: SHOESRivers said he doesn’t know how long it will be before he can expect to reincorporate Landry Shamet, the Clippers’ second-year shooting guard – sidelined with an ankle sprain – back into the rotation.The Clippers have been bugging Shamet, Rivers said, just not about a return date.“We have this thing with Landry, and I think it’s irritating him, but we keep saying, ‘If you can put on a shoe, you can walk, if you can walk you can run, if you can run, you can sprint, if you can sprint you can play,’” Rivers said. “He’s wearing shoes now, so that’s better than what he was doing.“I talk to him every day, and I have yet to ask him, like, ‘When do you think you’re coming back?’ I just always think when a coach asks that question, a player thinks that’s pressure. So I literally never ask that question.“But,” Rivers confirmed, “he’s wearing shoes.” George finished third in league MVP voting last season, averaging career-highs of 28 points and 8.2 rebounds, and a career-high-tying 4.1 assists per game – despite shoulders that needed surgery once the season was over.So it was George’s own experience that told him that the Westbrook-Harden pairing would play out well for the Rockets, who entered Friday’s game 11-4.“They are one of the best teams in the West, so they are working well,” said George, who’s recently returned from the surgeries that repaired a partially torn tendon in his right shoulder and a partial tear of his left labrum, and who entered Friday’s game averaging 28.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.8 assists in his first four games with the Clippers.“I don’t really watch too much of the Rockets, but I know their standing and what their record is, and the indication of that is they are playing well this year.”While Westbrook came into Friday averaging 21.8 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.9 assists this season, Harden was averaging a league-best 38.4 points, 7.5 assists and 5.8 rebounds while shooting 42.9 percent.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
