The Los Angeles Clippers might have lost their restart debut Thursday against the Los Angeles Lakers, but they started Saturday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans on fire.

In particular, star forward Paul George was feeling it from beyond the arc. George nailed three consecutive treys to open the game, giving Los Angeles an early lead over Zion Williamson and Co.

This is the continuation of a hot start from George, who hit on 11-of-17 from the field for 30 points in Thursday’s narrow loss to the Lakers.

Los Angeles is going to need much more of this from its star forward if the team wants to outlast the Lakers once the 2020 NBA Playoffs start.
