That is because it’s been some time since these two have played together, as they have both been recovering from injury and rehabilitation for nearly a year.
As the regular season quickly approaches, fans of the team are eager to see if George and Leonard are looking like their old selves or if they need to shake some rust off.

On Sunday night, George gave fans reason to believe that he was just as he used to be.
During the preseason game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, George performed a vintage windmill dunk that got fans on their feet and cheering.
A dunk like this is impressive no matter when it is performed but the Clippers faithful are hopeful that the player will be doing a lot more like this in the regular season.
The Jam From George
George was carrying the Clippers last season without Leonard until an elbow injury kept him out for three months.
He came back late in the season but the damage had been done to the Clippers’ win record and they ended up missing the postseason.
Now that he’s had even more time to recover and now that Leonard is back, the Clippers have a lot of opportunities in the months ahead.
There are quite a few NBA analysts who predict that the Clippers could have their best season in years.
In fact, some are even saying they could be bound for the NBA Finals.
If they are, it’ll be because Leonard and George are playing magically together.
That means that George will need to produce plenty more plays like the windmill dunk from Sunday night, again and again.
