NBA Western Conference Player of the Week: Paul George

November 8, 2022

The Clippers went 3-1 under Paul George’s direction. This past week, Paul George has been on an unbelievable tear. George has fulfilled his promise to improve following a defeat to the New Orleans Pelicans, and he has.


George was recently selected as the NBA’s Western Conference Player of the Week for October 31–November 6. It appears that his efforts have been rewarded.


George led the Clippers to a 3-1 record while averaging 33 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 5.5 assists per game. On the other hand, Kevin Durant was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week. Coincidentally, both players are coping with somewhat similar circumstances, ones in which they are both being used considerably more frequently now that their superstar counterparts are unable to play. While Kevin Durant has been playing without Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons, Paul George has lost Kawhi Leonard. In order to gain some victories, both Paul George and Kevin Durant had to step up their games significantly. As a result, both received their rewards.


Given that the Clippers will play the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers, and Cleveland Cavaliers this week, it will be challenging to determine whether Paul George can maintain his current level of play. The team’s injuries have only gotten worse through that time, and they have lost Reggie Jackson and Luke Kennard. Paul George will eventually get worn out.
