Paul George scored 26 points in a win over the Kings on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.
He did most of his damage in the first quarter as the Thunder got out to a huge 44-21 lead after one. However, OKC scored just 41 points in the second and third quarter to eventually blow that lead in the third quarter. George was on a tear to start the month with 29.6 points per game in his previous February outings, so he's set up for a monster finish. Feb 23 - 1:02 AM

Paul George said he's not interested in playing for "multiple teams" throughout his career.

"The decision I make will ultimately be to build something," said George of his upcoming free agency. "So, this next decision, whatever it is, is to make sure I'm there for a duration." PG-13 will be one of the biggest names to hit the open market this summer, and with L.A. roots and the Lakers having the ability to sign two max players this summer, Los Angeles could be an option. However, OKC is hoping that a deep playoff run will entice him to re-up there. We're in for a fun offseason.

Paul George hinted he knows what he'll do this offseason.

To clarify, George was asked if he knows what he'll do this summer. "I don't," he said. "I know what I feel is best." So if he knows it, does he have an idea of his plan? Russell Westbrook also suggested that he thinks PG is going to stay, so this will obviously be a huge story this summer.
Feb 17 - 6:15 PM

Paul George hit 10-of-15 shots and 6-of-9 3-pointers for 28 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 38 minutes, recording an incredibly efficient line in Wednesday's 121-114 win over the Grizzlies.

Carmelo Anthony could learn something from PG-13's efficiency, and hit 7-of-18 shots and four 3-pointers for 19 points and almost nothing else. George has blended in nicely with Russell Westbrook and the Thunder have a slew of teams sniffing their tails for a playoff berth in the West. George needs to continue to play at a high level if the Thunder are going to survive, so look for more big lines coming his way going forward. The Nuggets, Pelicans and Blazers are just one game back of the No. 5 Thunder, while the Clippers and Jazz are also in striking distance.
Feb 14 - 11:44 PM

Paul George exploded for a game-high 33 points over 35 minutes in Sunday's 110-92 win against the Grizzlies.

George was on fire, and he benefited from the fact Carmelo Anthony (ankle) and Russell Westbrook (ankle) were both sidelined. PG13 hit 10-of-24 from the field, including 5-of-10 from behind the 3-point line, while adding eight assists, three steals and a blocked shot. With or without the other starts, George remains an obvious must-start, but it is certainly nice when he is the primary scoring option.
Feb 11 - 11:14 PM

Paul George hit 11-of-25 shots and five 3-pointers for 29 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and six turnovers in 34 minutes of Thursday's blowout loss to the Lakers.

George was great, but the Thunder struggled mightily against the Lakers without Russell Westbrook, who was held out with an ankle injury, and OKC has now lost five of their last six games after going on an eight-game winning streak. PG-13 is good to go on any given night, so his performance in this one was a little disappointing, given that Westbrook was wearing street clothes.
Feb 9 - 1:05 AM

Paul George scored a game-high 38 points in Tuesday's 125-105 win over the Warriors, hitting 11-of-23 shots and 10-of-12 free throws.

This was one of the best two-way games of his career. Russell Westbrook carried OKC early, but George took over in the second half, adding five rebounds, three assists, six steals and six triples. The NBA's leader in steals is already is flirting with first-round value in standard 9-category leagues and should see a bump in value if Carmelo Anthony misses time with his ankle sprain -- Melo played just six minutes tonight. George gets a matchup with his hometown Lakers on Thursday, a team that he's been linked to for years.
Feb 7 - 2:05 AM

Paul George went 10-of-19 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line during Sunday's loss to the Lakers, on his way to 26 points in 40 minutes.

PG-13 also added three triples, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and four turnovers, and he was just one of four players for OKC to connect on at least 50% of his shot attempts. Terrance Ferguson started again, but remained invisible, finishing with just one steal and one turnover across 11 scoreless minutes.
Feb 4 - 5:56 PM

Paul George's season-high 43 points were not enough during 127-124 loss to the Nuggets on Thursday, adding five rebounds, five assists, two steals and five 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

It looked like George was going to have the shot of the night with a 3-pointer to tie it at 124, but Gary Harris had other ideas at the buzzer. He also didn't go to the line in this game to make him the first player to score more than 40 without an FT attempt since Wally Szczerbiak in 2003. He's trending up and he could be very busy if Russell Westbrook can't play Friday.
Feb 2 - 1:40 AM

Paul George hit 8-of-14 shots, four 3-pointers and 8-of-10 free throws on his way to 28 points, six rebounds and nothing else in a 102-96 loss to the Wizards.

Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony hit a combined 12-of-39 shots, so George's efficiency, along with that of Steven Adams, who hit 6-of-11 shots for 16 points and 12 rebounds, kept the Thunder in the game until the end. Washington pulled away in the final minutes though, and the Thunder will try to regroup in time for Thursday's date with the Nuggets.
Jan 30 - 9:53 PM

Paul George lit up the Sixers for 31 points on Sunday, making 9-of-17 field goals and 9-of-11 free throws with four rebounds, four assists and four steals.

George has scored 10+ first-quarter points in four of OKC's previous five games. PG-13 is playing aggressively alongside Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony, and his defensive ability is a buffer for off-shooting nights -- he's averaging 0.6 blocks and a league-high 2.2 steals per game.
Jan 28 - 9:35 PM

Paul George was named to the All-Star Team as DeMarcus Cousins' replacement.

Maybe commissioner Adam Silver saw the first quarter today before making the move because PG-13 tore it up with 16 points in 12 minutes, finishing with 26 points, three rebounds, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers against the Pistons. George has really broken out as a scorer lately and he's been to the line 35 times over his last four games. George will be joining LeBron James' team in Los Angeles later this month. Of course, Lakers fans will probably hope that statement is true this summer.
Jan 27 - 8:18 PM

Paul George scored 18 points with two rebounds, four assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

The steals were finally there after PG-13 failed to pick one up in any of his previous four games. That actually caused Eric Bledsoe to pass him for the league lead and Bledsoe still holds the lead even after tonight. George is playing the most minutes per game he's played since 2012-13 and he continues to post early-round value thanks to said steals output.
Jan 25 - 11:03 PM

Paul George said Russell Westbrook's comments about him being an All-Star snub is making his future free-agency decision "easier" to make.

"Russ is the reason why this decision is becoming even more easier to make, is the character Russ [has]," George said. "A stand-up guy, and he has his teammate's back." Westbrook said it was "outrageous" that George wasn't voted in despite averaging 20.9 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.1 steals and 3.1 treys per game. If you're an OKC fan, then George's All-Star snub may turn out to be a good thing in the long run.

Paul George hit 9-of-20 shots for 28 points in a win over the Nets on Tuesday.

George also hit 9-of-11 freebies from the line, adding nine rebounds, one assist and one triple in 37 minutes. He hasn't recorded a steal or block in three straight games and is now to second to Eric Bledsoe in steals per game. George was an All-Star snub this season, something that probably wouldn't have happened if he stayed in Indiana. He'll get a matchup with a Wizards team on Thursday that could be without Otto Porter (hip).
