The Pacers have made their first-round pick available to help Paul George, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.
This is nothing new after they traded their first-round pick last year to get Thaddeus Young. According to the report, the Pacers are hoping that pick would translate to the addition of either an established wing or established frontline player. As we saw last week, the Pacers really need some depth at power forward while Glenn Robinson III isn't exactly a strong starter. This shouldn't affect George, Myles Turner or Jeff Teague, assuming the Pacers don't make a massive deal. Feb 17 - 10:09 PM

Paul George made 6-of-19 from the field for 17 points during a 111-98 loss to the Wizards on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

Coach Nate McMillan left George in a little longer than usual in the third, but it still wasn't enough to now put the Pacers on a six-game losing streak. George has been particularly bad in those last four, making just 34.4 percent from the field in those losses. A big reason why is he's made just three shots at the rim and went just 4-of-22 on his mid-range shots -- that's usually the main reason why he slumps. He'll head to his fourth All-Star Game and look to get it going again after that.

Paul George went ice cold after a strong start on Wednesday, finishing a loss to the Cavs with 13 points on 4-of-19 shooting, seven rebounds, three assists and no defensive stats in 36 minutes.

George recently expressed his frustration with the Pacers' struggles. "We see what works for us and then we go away from it," George said. "It's very frustrating, especially losing to Eastern [Conference] teams, where these games are going to come down to late March, early April, where we're playing desperate basketball trying to make the playoffs." Indiana is riding a five-game losing streak, but they have one more chance to turn things around in Thursday's pre-break finale.

Paul George scored 13 points before fouling out of Saturday's loss to the Bucks.

He had a tough time guarding Giannis Antetokounmpo, but then again, who wouldn't? George still logged 38 minutes and shot 4-of-11 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line, adding eight boards, three assists, two triples and five turnovers. Things won't get any easier for George on Monday vs. the Spurs as he should see a lot of Kawhi Leonard -- The Spurs allow the second fewest fantasy points to opposing small forwards.
Feb 11 - 11:07 PM

Paul George scored 31 points with four boards, two assists, one block and two triples in Friday's loss to the Wizards.

He finished 12-of-23 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line in 36 minutes. PG-13 is shooting a combined 12-of-17 from the line over his last four games, but he's still third in the NBA in FT percentage, shooting 91.1 percent on the season. He's scored 21+ points in five straight games, but should see a lot of Giannis Antetokounmpo on Saturday vs. the Bucks.
Feb 11 - 12:54 AM

Paul George hit just 7-of-20 shots and 2-of-9 3-pointers on his way to 21 points, eight rebounds, four assists and three steals in Monday's 93-90 win over the Thunder.

George hit an 18-footer late and the Thunder never scored again, allowing the Pacers to get a tough win after being down 11 at halftime. The Pacers have now won seven straight games and this was an especially impressive win given that George, Myles Turner and Jeff Teague didn't do anything particularly special tonight.
Feb 6 - 10:08 PM

Paul George scored 24 points with 11 rebounds, three assists, three blocks, two steals and one 3-pointer during a 106-97 win over the Nets on Friday.

He had massive usage in the first half with 15 points, making 6-of-15 from the field. Additionally, his point guard Jeff Teague was impressive with 24 points, three rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes. These two guys are red hot and seem to be hitting value more often than not. They get the Pistons on Saturday and could be getting some added shots with Thad Young (wrist) possibly banged up. The Pacers have also won five straight.
Feb 3 - 11:57 PM

Paul George cooled off vs. the Magic on Wednesday, going 3-of-14 from the field for eight points with seven rebounds, three assists and five turnovers in 33 minutes.

George had scored at least 30 points in four straight games, which Jeff Teague attributed to him finally getting over an early-season ankle injury, and his owners have nothing to worry about here. After knocking down one 3-pointer tonight, PG needs only three more to reach 800 in his NBA career.

Paul George said his goal is to get to the free throw line 10 times per game.

"I’m real comfortable. That’s the first shot I learned," George said. "I feel good every time going to the free throw line. As they used to say, it’s like being at home. That’s how you have to visualize being at the free throw line." This is music to his fantasy owners' ears, as George is shooting an NBA-best 92.6 percent from the line this season. He's currently averaging 5.4 FTAs per game, but that number is on the rise and he was able to connect on a career-high 16 free throws on 17 attempts in the win over the Kings on Friday. The All-Star forward is trending up and has scored 31+ points in four straight games.

Paul George made 13-of-23 field goals to finish Sunday's game with 33 points, three 3-pointers, nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.

PG-13 has been soaring lately, averaging 32.3 points in the Pacers' past four games. Part of his success is due to increased free throw attempts, which is by design. "[A free throw] is the first shot I learned," George said. "I’ve always tried to attack and get to the rim, and put the pressure on officials to make calls, and finish through contact. I’m getting calls now so it’s been good." George also had a highlight-reel dunk over Clint Capela, which you can watch via the link below.
Jan 29 - 8:52 PM

Paul George scored 33 points in an overtime win over the Kings on Friday, adding four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 45 minutes.

He was in a slight slump earlier this month, but now he's completely out of it with three consecutive games over 30 points. George also turned in a career-high 16 makes from the line during this win, which was a big reason why he went into one of those slumps. He actually leads the NBA in free throw percentage this year, so PG getting to the line more is great news.
Jan 28 - 12:52 AM

Paul George carried The Pacers to a 109-103 win over the Timberwolves with 32 points, five assists, four rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers on Thursday.

George drained a 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left on the clock in the second quarter, putting an exclamation mark on his impressive 16-point first half. He has now scored at least 21 points in four of his last five games and is starting to trend upwards. Over that stretch, he is averaging 25.4 points, five rebounds, three assists, and 1.2 steals per game. He should continue to play well, with several good matchups coming up against the Rockets, Magic, and Nets.
Jan 26 - 10:54 PM

Paul George hit 11-of-24 shots and 3-of-10 3-pointers for 31 points, seven rebounds, three assists and a steal in Monday's 109-103 loss to the Knicks.

George hadn't scored more than 24 points in any of his previous six games, so it was nice to see him break out of a min-funk tonight. He's averaging 22.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.6 3-pointers on 47 percent shooting over his last five.
Jan 24 - 12:29 AM

Paul George was ejected for arguing with a ref on Saturday night in Utah.

He fouled out anyway, so the ejection didn't hurt his playing time. George did have some things to say to the ref and he does have a track record for comments about officials, so he could be fined. We would be very surprised if he is suspended or anything. George finished with 19 points, four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.
Jan 21 - 11:09 PM

Paul George scored 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in Friday's loss to the Lakers.

George's name has popped up in the rumor a couple times this season, but Pacers president Larry Bird reiterated his desire to keep PG-13 in Indiana for the long term. "Before the year started, I told Paul and I said, ‘Look, if you want to sign a long-term deal, we’re willing to do that max [contract] and if you want to wait, I understand.’ But this year, we’re not going to worry about it, we’re not going to talk about it and he’s going to make the decision that’s best for Paul when it comes down to it." George has a player option for the 2018-19 season, but his contract situation isn't a pressing issue right now and is not a concern for fantasy owners.
