Paul George scored 37 points in a 109-100 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and five 3-pointers.
After a down February with only 17.8 points per game, George is on a roll in March. Even before this explosion, he was averaging 25.7 points, 7.7 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.1 steals and 3.0 treys in his previous 10 outings. George gets another friendly matchup against Denver on Friday, so he may be flirting with 40 for that game, as well. Mar 22 - 11:09 PM

Paul George poured in a season-high 39 points on Wednesday, sinking 15-of-21 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with six 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and three steals.

PG went 6-of-10 from deep tonight, helping the Pacers avoid a losing streak by beating the Hornets 98-77. George and Nate McMillan both said after Tuesday's loss that the Pacers hadn't played "the right way" vs. the Knicks. "Stop moving the ball, start taking quick shots, stop screening. Stop defending. Stop playing together," McMillan said. "When you don’t play the game the right way, you show up looking like that." They solved those problems tonight, and despite the team's inconsistency, George's owners have been enjoying top-20 value since the All-Star break.

Paul George scored 22 points on 9-of-22 shooting with 10 rebounds, two assists, three triples and six turnovers vs. the Knicks on Tuesday.

The Pacers have alternated wins and losses for the past 11 games, and while they are ranked No. 6 in the East right now, they are only 2.0 games ahead of the No. 10 seed (Miami). The good news for PG-13's fantasy owners is that he's less likely to be rested going forward with the Pacers fighting for a playoff spot. The Pacers have two more games this week against the Hornets on Wednesday and vs. the Raptors on Sunday.
Mar 14 - 10:34 PM

Paul George had 28 points and 10 rebounds in a tough win vs. the Heat, making 9-of-19 field goals and 9-of-9 free throws in a game-high 37 minutes.

George added one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer. His efforts helped the Pacers earn their 10th straight regular-season home win vs. the Heat, a streak that stretches back to 2012. The victory also gives PG and the Pacers some breathing room in the playoff race -- they hold the No. 6 seed but are just two games ahead of the No. 10 seed Bulls. At least we know George won't be getting any rest days down the stretch.
Mar 12 - 9:32 PM

Paul George scored 21 points during a 115-98 win over the Pistons on Wednesday, adding eight rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

He was on fire in the third quarter with his 13 points in that frame to put this game out of reach. George did log some minutes at shooting guard during this game, which could affect some minutes and usage of the other guards. George's offensive game is slightly down since the break, but his schedule has been tough. George has his Pacers in the sixth seed, so the race for seeding makes it less likely he gets his minutes managed.
Mar 8 - 11:52 PM

Paul George posted a monster line in a 100-88 loss to the Hornets on Monday, scoring 36 points with 10 rebounds and five assists.

PG-13 shot 15-of-25 from the field and 6-of-14 from beyond the arc, but did turn the ball over six times. This was his 12th game of the season with 30+ points and his third game with 6+ 3-pointers. After a sluggish four-game stretch since the All-Star break, George is rolling again and was coming off a 34-point performance on Sunday vs. the Hawks. He should feast against the Pistons on Wednesday in a game that has playoff implications -- the Pacers are sixth in the East with a 32-31 record and the Pistons are seventh with a 31-32 record.
Mar 6 - 10:55 PM

Paul George scored 34 points on 12-of-19 shooting during Sunday's 97-96 win over the Hawks, adding six 3-pointers, five boards, four assists, one steal and five turnovers in 38 minutes.

George had been connecting on just 29.6 percent of his shot attempts since coming out of the All-Star break, but he did a much better job reading the offense and creating good shots for himself today, so hopefully this is a sign of what’s to come. In addition to going 6-of-9 from beyond the arc, PG-13 also went 4-of-5 from the stripe, giving him a sterling true shooting percentage of 80.2 on the evening to accompany his 31.8 usage rate.
Mar 5 - 4:36 PM

Paul George was out-dueled by Kawhi Leonard in a terrific game on Wednesday, as PG finished with 22 points (5-of-18 FGs, 10-of-10 FTs), six rebounds, two assists and one steal.

"You just can’t play around with him," George said after facing Kawhi in mid-February. "He’s in that class of Tony Allen, he’s really good at first initial moves ... You’ve got to attack him aggressively." George's 27.8 percent shooting tonight is telling. He also missed a potential game-winner at the buzzer, but should fare better vs. Atlanta on Sunday.
Mar 2 - 1:31 AM

Paul George struggled with foul trouble on Monday vs. the Rockets, finishing with 15 points in 30 minutes.

He couldn't find his shot and finished 5-of-16 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, adding seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and three triples. George was ejected on Saturday vs. the Heat and has been a letdown to his fantasy owners for over a week, shooting just 32.4 percent from the field over his last five games. He gets a matchup vs. Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs on Wednesday, so bouncing back won't be easy -- The Spurs allow the second fewest fantasy points to small forwards this season. There's a reason why they call it Kawhian Island.
Feb 28 - 12:50 AM

Paul George was ejected from Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

He picked up two technical fouls and was ejected with 8:49 left in the third quarter. George finishes the game with 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting with one rebound and one assist in 19 minutes. He's in no danger of being suspended for Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

It'll be the usual group of Jeff Teague, C.J. Miles, George, Thaddeus Young and Myles Turner. George cramped up late in Friday's game, but he has said he was going to play since the post-game interviews. He should be ready to roll, assuming he had a banana and extra water.
Feb 25 - 7:34 PM

Paul George (cramp) and Thaddeus Young (wrist) both are expected to play against the Heat on Saturday.

Feb 25 - 6:47 PM

Paul George battled through leg cramps on Friday night but said he expects to play Saturday vs. Miami.

The cramps hit late in the fourth quarter and George eventually had to hobble back to the locker room before the final buzzer. "The cramps started at about the five-minute mark," said George. "It just got worse and worse as the game went on... I should be fine. I’ll drink a lot of water and drink a lot of Gatorade." PG13 finished with just nine points, nine rebounds and four assists on Friday, but should bounce back on Saturday vs. the Heat.
Feb 25 - 10:25 AM

Paul George (cramp) said he will play against the Heat on Saturday night.

He had a cramp that looked to be just above his knee and George did have to limp to the locker room in the last minute on Friday. The Pacers are going to Miami for the Saturday game, so they won't have a shootaround. For now, his fantasy owners can expect him to play for the 8:00 EST start.
Feb 24 - 10:06 PM

Paul George limped to the locker room with less than one minute remaining in the fourth quarter on Friday.

He had an awkward landing on his right leg and had a trainer come out to look at him while he was standing. George eventually went to the bench and had a trainer look at him while he was grimacing for about two minutes, but then limped to the locker room with about 30 seconds left. We should have an update on George in the post-game.He finished with just nine points, nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.
