Paul George Upset With NBA Over Rough Playoff Schedule: “The League Been F*cking Us Up For A While”
The Los Angeles Clippers have a couple of things to worry about in their upcoming seven-game series with the Phoenix Suns. One of which is their tough schedule that requires no extra days off for the first four games.

For the record, the series between the Clippers and the Suns is the only series that have no extra days off from Games 1-4. Every other playoff series has a two-day break in that same span.
Short rest in between games is crucial for a team like Clippers considering their injury history and overall health of the team. Paul George, who has been out since late March due to a knee injury, now vented out his frustration as his team continues to experience a difficult slate of games.
“It’s bullsh-t. The league been f-cking us up for a while,” George said. “It’s tough for us and I want to say the past couple of years where we’ve just had a tough schedule of playing the most games going into All-Star break. We’ve just had years of tough schedules. With all of it, I think if we can just look at it like let’s just f-cking take care of business, we’ll get the most rest out of this. Get ready, hopefully, see where I’m at, maybe I’m good?”
