Instead, fans saw a one-man show.

With Kawhi Leonard absent for his fourth game of the season, Paul George provided a commanding performance in his first home game as a Clipper by scoring 37 points in 20 minutes in his team’s 150-101 victory over Atlanta at Staples Center.

BOX SCORE: CLIPPERS 150, HAWKS 101

The victory ended a two-game losing streak and also provided further evidence that George, who hadn’t played in 207 days until he scored 33 points in 24 minutes during his season debut Thursday, is already far along in his progression back to the court after offseason surgery on both shoulders. George called that performance “terrible,” in part because it occurred during a loss in New Orleans.

He didn’t grade Saturday’s effort so critically.

Clippers beat Trail Blazers 107-101 for Rivers' 900th win

  Clippers beat Trail Blazers 107-101 for Rivers' 900th win LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Clippers were kings of the fourth quarter. Portland star Damian Lillard lost his crown, at least for a night anyway. Lou Williams made a go-ahead jumper with 58 seconds left, then added a 3-pointer and finished with 26 points to lift Los Angeles over the Trail Blazers 107-101 on Thursday for coach Doc Rivers' 900th career victory. "Doc never stops going and grinding," Kawhi Leonard said. "He never gets bored."

“It means everything,” George said afterward, on the television broadcast. “I could get used to this.”

When he went to the bench with 8:07 remaining in the third quarter, George had already scored 34 points in his first 18 minutes. Had he not returned for the fourth quarter, it would not have been shocking. The Clippers (8-5) were already leading by double digits and there was no need for an encore. Fans had already chanted “6-6-1!” during his free-throw attempts — the number for the area code of Palmdale, where George grew up.

But then, during the break between the third and fourth quarters, George wiped his shiny, silver sneakers on a traction pad at the scorer’s table and returned to the court.

Within 18 seconds, George caught a pass from JaMychal Green and drilled a three-pointer from 28 feet, and as he jogged backward on defense, he shrugged while rapper Quavo cheered from a courtside seat. Four possessions later, he provided an emphatic coda on his first home game as a Clipper when he sprinted ahead of Atlanta’s defense in transition and bounced a pass off the backboard that was caught and dunked by teammate Montrezl Harrell.

Report: Paul George will make Clippers debut this week

  Report: Paul George will make Clippers debut this week George had offseason surgery on both shoulders and has been frustrated about his rehab process. Acquired from the Oklahoma City Thunder in a blockbuster trade this past July, George joins Kawhi Leonard on a 7-3 Clippers team that has manhandled opponents through the early stages of the season.The six-time All-Star averaged a career-best 28.0 points to go with 8.2 rebounds and 4.1 assists for the Thunder last season.Given that this road trip represents a back-to-back, it will be interesting to see when George returns to the court. Remember, Leonard himself is not playing on back-to-back nights.

Kawhi Leonard has been recruiting Paul George to find a way to get to the Clippers and LA pulled it off tonight: George goes to the Clippers with Leonard , and together they walk into Staples Center to go head-to-head with LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

When George finally checked out for good shortly thereafter, Hall of Famer Jerry West, a Clippers adviser, was among the fans who rose to applaud.

Lou Williams added 25 points off the bench and Jerome Robinson scored a career-high 21 points.

Leonard did not play because of a left knee contusion suffered Wednesday after knocking knees against Houston—a different injury than the ongoing tendon issue in the same knee that has been the basis for his three previous absences this season. Coach Doc Rivers said he was not concerned about the contusion being anything more than a “day-to-day” injury.

Starting guard Patrick Beverley missed his second consecutive game, as well, with a hurt left calf and another starting guard, Landry Shamet watched in street clothes with the help of a crutch, the result of a sprained ankle he suffered four days before.

While the Clippers’ star went off, the Hawks’ struggled.

Second-year guard Trae Young was called “amazing” by Rivers before tipoff for a sophomore season that has seen the 6-foot-1 guard average huge numbers — 27.3 points and 9.1 assists, including 32 points and 11.5 assists in his last four entering Saturday.

First to worst: How Warriors coach Steve Kerr keeps positive attitude with Golden State

  First to worst: How Warriors coach Steve Kerr keeps positive attitude with Golden State Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr has little experience with losing. He has changed his approach and philosophies to help his young team meld.Kerr does not just consult his playbook, game footage or various mentors. He also recently read two books titled “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” and Viktor Frankl’s “Man’s Search for Meaning.” The books have nothing to do with basketball. Yet, Kerr believes it has everything to do with how to handle his current job.

Does Kawhi Leonard get the nod with his superior defense and scintillating 3 point shooting? Or is Paul George better for carrying a team on his back?

Kawhi Leonard signed with the Clippers — and somehow Paul George is coming with him. What an absurd turn of events. Kawhi Leonard ’s free agency has ended in an absolute stunner. The 2019 NBA Finals MVP has signed with the Los Angeles Clippers , and in the process, brought Oklahoma

“We look at his size, he’s a tough dude,” Rivers said. “He’s got this cutthroat, killer attitude.”

By halftime, however, Young had made only two of his first 11 field goals and he finished with 20 points on 4-of-16 shooting, with six assists and five rebounds. Atlanta (4-8) never recovered without Young’s production. Clippers guard Rodney McGruder picked Young up with full-court pressure at times, and on others a second player stood at the midcourt line to force a trap. Young couldn’t find the room to operate.

George had no such trouble, however.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Coach Doc Rivers called the first play of the game for Paul George and he hit a 3-pointer. His teammates found him the rest of the way. Kawhi Leonard scored 34 points, George added 31, and the Los Angeles Clippers rolled past undermanned Washington 150-125 on Sunday night for their 12th win in a row over the Wizards at home. “It’s those new shoulders. He’s just a great shooter,” Rivers said of George. “He’s shooting deep shots on the move and doing it with great balance.
