Paul George scored 23 points with two rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Jazz during a Game 3 loss on Saturday.
He had a tough start and was the only productive high-volume offensive player. Perhaps the PG-related highlight from this game is the Utah crowd chanting "push-off P" with some fouls called against him. George also was hardly the defensive presence that he's been in his career as OKC was run out of the building late. Apr 22 - 12:42 AM

Paul George (hip) had 18 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks in 43 minutes vs. the Jazz on Wednesday, going 6-of-21 from the field and 4-of-12 from downtown.

George aggravated a hip/pelvis injury during Game 1 but his status was never in doubt. He was averaging 38.0 points on red-hot shooting in his previous two games, including the regular-season finale, but just couldn't find the range tonight in a tough 102-95 home loss. The Thunder will try to reclaim the series lead in Utah on Saturday.
Apr 18 - 10:55 PM

Paul George (hip) will start Wednesday's game, as expected.

George was technically a game-time decision but his status was never truly in doubt. He dropped 36 points in Game 1 and should be a focal point of Utah's defensive plans tonight.
Apr 18 - 7:20 PM

Paul George (hip) is expected to play against the Jazz in Game 2 on Wednesday.

No surprise here and he's been expected to play all day. George was limited in shootaround, but there's no need to worry too much. Playoff P himself said he expects the Jazz to adjust to him after his big 36-point Game 1.
Apr 18 - 6:29 PM

Paul George (bruised right hip) was a limited participant in practice on Tuesday and Thunder coach Billy Donovan said he's questionable for Game 2.

"[George] did some things in practice, but not much," Donovan said. "We’ll probably see where he’s at after shootaround [Wednesday] and probably evaluate him going into the game." After going off for 36 points on Sunday, George said he had aggravated an injury he suffered vs. the Hawks on Mar. 13, but added that he'll "never sit out playoff games." Despite his confidence, he remains questionable pending Wednesday's shootaround.
Apr 17 - 6:16 PM

Paul George (right hip contusion) didn't take contact during Tuesday's practice.

George was also limited to non-contact practice on Monday, but he's downplayed the severity of his injury, saying, he'll "never sit out playoff games." It would be shocking if PG-13 sat out Game 2 on Wednesday.
Apr 17 - 2:39 PM

Paul George (right hip contusion) practiced on Monday.

Coach Billy Donovan said it was a non-contact practice, so this doesn't mean much. George is supposed to be re-evaluated on Monday, but this is all we know so far. For what it's worth, George said on Sunday that he will be ready for Game 2.
Apr 16 - 1:47 PM

Paul George (right hip contusion) will be reevaluated on Monday, but he said he'll be ready to go for Game 2.

George was scintillating in Game 1 with 36 points and eight 3-pointers, and we're only leaving him on the injury report out of an abundance of caution. George said it was an aggravation of an injury he suffered vs. Atlanta, apparently referencing the pelvic strain he suffered on Mar. 13. He didn't miss any time with that injury and said he will "never sit out playoff games," so all signs point to him playing his usual role.
Apr 15 - 9:42 PM

Paul George made a Thunder postseason record eight 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing a Game 1 victory with 36 points on 13-of-20 shooting, seven rebounds and one steal.

Before the series, George referred to his postseason persona as "Playoff P", adding, "It's a fun person to watch. It's an out-of-body person where I just lock in and put myself into a different zone." He was in that zone at both ends tonight, and he carried OKC's offense early with 20 points during the first half alone. He started taking heat-check triples with his team up double-digits in the second half, drained a buzzer-beater to end the third quarter, and the Thunder never looked back in a 116-108 home win. The only negative is that Playoff P suffered "muscle tightness" in his back tonight, according to coach Billy Donovan, so we'll keep a close watch on his status prior to Game 2 on Wednesday.
Apr 15 - 9:11 PM

Paul George caught fire vs. Memphis on Wednesday, making 13-of-20 shots and eight 3-pointers to finish with 40 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

George was 7-of-7 from deep at one point vs. the Grizzlies' porous defense, and OKC went on to win a shootout 137-123 to wrap up the regular season. PG-13 has missed just three games and he's among the league leaders in steals (2.0 per game), in addition to 21.7 points, 3.0 triples, 5.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 0.5 blocks. The only real caveat has been 42.7% shooting on the season, but even so he's flirting with first-round value in almost any format.
Apr 12 - 12:01 AM

Paul George had a big fourth quarter and hit 7-of-19 shots and 5-of-13 3-pointers for 27 points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 37 minutes of Monday's 115-93 win over the Heat, officially putting the Thunder in the playoffs.

George's line wasn't incredible tonight, but he played very well, especially in the fourth quarter when the Thunder outscored the Heat 39-12, and he's a big reason they're going to be playing in the postseason. George has one game remaining, which is Wednesday night against the Grizzlies. Carmelo Anthony, on the other hand, had 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting, as his season of disappointment continues.
Apr 9 - 10:31 PM

Paul George feels there's something mechanically wrong with his shot at the moment.

"I don’t know that it is. It just feels funny," George said after Tuesday's loss to the Warriors. "Shooting the ball feels funny." PG-13 has been mired in a shooting slump over the past six games, connecting on just 32.1% of his shot attempts, but he's still come through with averages of 17.7 points, 6.0 boards, 3.3 dimes, 2.2 steals and 2.3 turnovers per contest. Paul is prone to the occasional cold shooting streaks, but he should turn things around soon enough.
Apr 4 - 12:30 PM

Paul George went for a team-high 27 points in Sunday's 109-104 road victory against the Pelicans across 37 minutes.

George hit just 9-of-24 from the field, and 3-of-11 from behind the 3-point line, as he is now just 28.6 percent from downtown since the All-Star break. There's no denying the offensive talent on the OKC roster, but their perimeter shooting could be their undoing once we reach the NBA postseason.
Apr 1 - 9:43 PM

Paul George scored 26 points on 9-of-20 shooting Thursday, to go with three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, six assists, four steals and three turnovers in 39 minutes.

George had the hot hand early for OKC, and he did a really nice job of collapsing San Antonio’s defense and finding the open man on the kick out. PG-13 was coming into this game shooting just 22.6% from the field over the previous two, so while tonight’s shooting performance wasn’t anything remarkable, it was a step in the right direction and he also buried all five of his freebies.
Mar 29 - 11:19 PM

Paul George ended up with 16 points over 39 minutes in Sunday's 108-105 loss against the visiting Trail Blazers.

George was just 4-of-15 from the field, including a dismal 0-of-7 from behind the 3-point line, although he made up for it with a perfect 8-of-8 from the free-throw line. He was limited to just two rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot, though, so it was an ugly performance by his standards. He'll have a few days to regroup before the team kicks off a three-game week Thursday in San Antonio.
