The Los Angeles Clippers and Indiana Pacers have proven they’re capable to contend for a championship already this season. Combined, they have a 28-7 record and are both on top of their divisions. On Sunday the Pacers were in Los Angeles to battle the Clippers and came away victorious with a score of 105-100. Paul George didn’t disappoint, scoring 27 in the win.
