Law Murray, who covers the Los Angeles Clippers as a beat reporter for The Athletic, joined Stiles and Watkins Tuesday afternoon prior to LA’s matchup with the Sacramento Kings in Golden 1 Center than night.

With Kawhi Leonard determined to be out for the matchup, Murray explained the Clippers’ health this season, something they have struggled with in recent years. With Leonard out, more offensive responsibility is shifted to James Harden and Paul George.

Murray outlined how the team has stylistically adapted to Harden’s strengths, and the potential weaknesses that come with it that Sacramento could benefit from exploiting. Paul George, meanwhile, often finds his looks easily within the flow of the game and seamlessly fits to the surrounding talent.

That’s exactly why every team with cap space this offseason should be monitoring his status. Paul George has $48.7-million player option for next season, but Murray explains the Clippers have had an open extension offer to George for some time now. Leonard signed his, Paul George has not yet.

While speculation has been floating on that front, Tuesday night’s game between the Kings and Clippers holds substantial weight in the race of the Western Conference as single-digit games remaing in the 2023-24 regular season.
