“I thought we were bad on the ball, bad off the ball. It’s a good team. Phoenix has been together. They’re a decent team.”

Paul George makes a 3 after Marcus Morris spent multiple possessions getting buckets. Williams calls an urgent timeout, Suns up 82-72 with 2:28 left in 3rd quarter.
It’s the closest Clippers have been since the first subs were made.

Paul George 3. #Clippers down 10. Trailed by as many as 22.
