This is leading many people to ask if Leonard and George are the best duo in the NBA right now.
Over the last 20 games, these two have only missed a few games.
That is much better than how they were performing earlier in the season when they were sitting out of numerous games as Leonard rehabbed from his ACL injury and George suffered a few physical setbacks of his own.
As these two have become healthier, the team has gotten better.
The Clippers are now the fifth-best team in the West with a 37-33 record.
They are right behind the Phoenix Suns.
But is this surge from Leonard and George coming too late?
It’s great to see both players fully healthy and working terrifically as a pair but everyone is wondering if they have what it takes to not only end the regular season on a high note but have a memorable postseason too.NEXT: Russell Westbrook Receives Praise From His New Teammate
