Amidst the bustling holiday season, LA Clippers' star Paul George is making the most of his time, bonding with his son during the team's games. The standout guard/forward recently took to Instagram, sharing a heartwarming glimpse into his personal life.

Fans were delighted to see George's young son energetically dancing to the rhythms of Drake and J Cole's "First Person Shooter." The clip, featured in George's Instagram story, not only showcases a sweet father-son moment but also highlights the youngster's admiration for the popular track.

George, in his post, playfully nods to his long-time friendship with Drake, commenting, "You’re his guy bro," as he celebrates his son's favorite song.

Clippers' Challenging Phase

In professional news, the Clippers are navigating a challenging phase with Kawhi Leonard sidelined due to a left hip injury (contusion) after 27 initial games.

His absence was felt as the Clippers struggled, securing only one victory in the last three matches. However, the tide seems to be turning with their recent 104-113 victory against the Charlotte Hornets. Addressing the media, George emphasized the team's resilience and the need to adapt in Leonard's absence.

"We have a solid structure in our defense and offense. We can plug guys in, and they're expected to perform at Kawhi's level," George stated, underlining the collective effort required. He further added that adopting a "next man up" mentality is crucial for the Clippers' aspirations this season.

Despite Leonard's absence, the Clippers have shown remarkable form, turning around a rocky start. With the inclusion of James Harden, they've secured 10 wins in their last 12 games, including a nine-game winning streak. This impressive run has propelled them to fourth in the standings.

Looking ahead, the Clippers are set to host the Memphis Grizzlies in an anticipated face-off. The Grizzlies, bolstered by Ja Morant's return, are on a four-game winning streak. George, with his impressive season stats of 22.9 points per game, 5.5 rebounds, and 4.1 assists, remains a pivotal figure for the Clippers as they continue their pursuit of glory.
