Paul George credited his recent scoring streak to a "breakthrough" in his mentality.
"The [toe] injury allowed me to kind of make an excuse for myself. But then I put it in perspective ... if I'm gonna play, then don't let it limit me."
"I feel like I've had a breakthrough because of that mindset," said George on Tuesday.
George has scored 30 or more points in four consecutive games, with the Clippers currently on a six-game win streak.
He is also shooting a career-high 47.7% from the field and 43.8% from the three-point line.
Marcus Morris also noted George's improvement.
"He's playing with a chip on his shoulder. He is making an emphasis of really taking over and being the best version of himself."
