The Los Angeles Clippers have been showing a lot of spirit and fight this season.
Despite that, the team is sitting at the eighth seed in the Western Conference standings and has a chance to have an impact in the playoffs.
And now comes some of the best news possible for the team.

George has been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday night’s game against the Utah Jazz.
That means there is a strong chance that George will be returning to the team this week after being gone for months.
If he does, this could quite literally be a game-changer.
King George Returns
During 26 games this season, George averaged 24.7 points, 7.1 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 2 steals per game.
He was in contention for MVP and was playing some of the best basketball of his career.
George was forced to carry his team more than usual this season because they were lacking Leonard.
There were many who didn’t expect the Clippers to have a good season.
In fact, many thought they wouldn’t even make the playoffs.
They’ve gotten to the eighth seed all by themselves.
If George returns, they will be in much better shape than expected.
Will it be enough to take down a number one or two seed?
That remains to be seen, especially because the Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies are playing so well.
Regardless, the return of George would be music to the ears of all Clippers fans.
