Paul George hit 14-of-19 shots and 7-of-8 3-pointers for a season-high 40 points to go along with eight boards, four assists and two steals in Tuesday's easy win over the Wizards.
This was easily George's best game of the season and came on the heels of his recent comments about him feeling like he is better than he was prior to his leg injury. This might be a nice sell-high moment for George, but the small forward position is so thin and he's putting up big numbers, meaning you're probably just better off riding him out and hoping that he stays healthy all season. George's career high is 43 points. Nov 24 - 9:36 PM

Paul George stated during a recent interview that he feels he's better now than he was before his gruesome leg injury.

"I feel like I’m better. I think a year away from the game, you learn, you grow, regardless if I was on the court or not," George said. "You just get a chance to really observe and be a student of the game, at that point when you’re sitting out. So I think that was the little bit that I needed, the push that I needed. I worked hard that summer going into the season. Granted I got hurt, but I feel like that year away was what I needed to just learn." Paul George is currently putting up first-round value on the season, and there's no reason to believe he can't keep it up.

Paul George made 7-of-16 from the field for 20 points during a 123-86 win over the Bucks on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

It's his ninth-consecutive game with at least 20 points and he's also made at least three 3-pointers in four straight. George is locked-in as a 3-pointer shooter on the season, making 42.7 percent from deep. He's not getting into the paint quite as much, but his fantasy owners won't care as long as his shot keeps dropping. George looks like he was worth the risk for his aggressive fantasy owners.
Nov 21 - 9:44 PM

Paul George continued his scorching play in Wednesday's blowout road win, scoring 34 points on 13-of-24 shooting with five 3-pointers, eight rebounds, five assists and four steals.

He lit up the Sixers' soft defense all night, but the quality of competition has hardly mattered lately -- he's averaging 28.4 points and 3.6 triples in his past five games, including tilts against the Bulls, Wolves and Celtics. Everyone who burned a top-20 pick on PG should be thrilled with the decision.
Nov 18 - 10:05 PM

Paul George scored a game-high 26 points during a 96-95 loss to the Bulls on Monday, adding seven rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers.

He was blocked on the last possession by Jimmy Butler. George has scored at least 26 points in each of his last six games and he's also putting up nine boards, five dimes and three treys per game this month. George may not like analytics, but his numbers have been terrific this season.
Nov 16 - 11:39 PM

When recently discussing his mid-range game, Paul George said he was "not a fan of analytics."

"The greatest player to ever play this game was a midrange jump shooter in Michael Jordan," George said. "At that time no one had nothing to say. It’s about what’s best for that player and what’s the skill set of that player. We have a lot of guys who are more than capable at shooting well from the midrange." We understand George's thought process, but his interpretation is flawed. It's OK—he's still a fantasy stud, so we'll forgive him.
Nov 16 - 10:24 AM

Paul George scored 29 points with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Wolves on Friday.

His efficiency has really picked up in his last five, making 48.1 percent from the field for averages of 30.0 points, 9.2 boards, 4.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.8 treys. Why? He's made a spectacular 18-of-27 (66.7 percent) in the paint during that time, but those shots account for just 26.2 percent of his shot total. He's also hit 48.3 percent from deep, too. George is en fuego, but he shouldn't be this hot the rest of the way.
Nov 13 - 10:46 PM

Paul George hit 7-of-17 shots, three 3-pointers and 10-of-11 free throws for 27 points, four boards, seven assists, a steal and six turnovers in Monday's win over the Magic.

George is ballin' and is averaging 27.4 points, 9.2 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.6 steals, 3.0 3-pointers, 4.0 turnovers and is shooting 45 percent over his last five games.
Nov 9 - 10:12 PM

Paul George went off for 32 points (11-of-21 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs) during a tough loss to the Cavs on Sunday, adding 11 rebounds, six assists, three 3-pointers and four turnovers through 39 minutes.

This was the first time in George's career that he has scored 30-plus points in back-to-back games, and he looks all set up for a bounce-back year after spending a majority of the 2014-15 season on the sidelines. PG-13 is currently putting up second-round value on the season with averages of 21.5 points, 9.0 boards, 4.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.8 three-pointers per game. He's struggled after the break for his last two seasons, so hopefully that's behind him.
Nov 8 - 6:42 PM

The Pacers are planning on using their small-ball lineup on Sunday vs. the Cavaliers which means Paul George will start at power forward.

As long as C.J. Miles (ankle) is cleared to play, the Pacers will roll with a starting five of George Hill, Monta Ellis, Miles, George and Ian Mahinmi. This would mean that Lavoy Allen would return to the bench and would lose most of his value. The Cavs have a traditional lineup with Timofey Mozgov and Kevin Love in their frontcourt, so the matchup between George and Love will be a lot of fun to watch.
Nov 8 - 9:24 AM

Paul George scored 36 points on 14-of-27 shooting (2-of-6 3PTs, 6-of-8 FTs) with 12 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in the Pacers' 90-87 win over the Heat.

Preseason concerns over George's ability to produce this season were completely unfounded and he is returning top 10-20 value (8/9 cat) so far this year.
Nov 7 - 1:00 AM

Paul George had 16 points, nine rebounds, six assists, three steals and two 3-pointers, but hit just 5-of-17 shots as the Pacers picked up their first win over the season by beating the previously undefeated Pistons.

In three of his four games, George has hit 5-of-17, 5-of-15 and 4-of-17, as he continues to take ill-advised shots with hands in his face. The shooting is a serious concern, but the rest of his numbers, including his scoring, have been very nice. Maybe his shot selection will improve soon.
Nov 3 - 9:56 PM

Paul George made 5-of-15 from the field for 18 points during a 112-103 loss to the Grizzlies on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

If not for taking so many contested pull-ups, George's start would look a lot better. He was a little more aggressive tonight than he was on Wednesday and still he has a built-in excuse for going against DeMarre Carroll and Tony Allen in his first two games.
Oct 29 - 10:58 PM

Paul George will move to small forward for Thursday's game against Memphis.

This could happen a lot this season and the Pacers are going to base their lineups on the opposition. He nearly triple-doubled on Wednesday with 17 points, 12 boards, eight assists and three steals, but his rebounding numbers could dip tonight.
Oct 29 - 5:33 PM

Paul George flirted with a triple-double on inefficient shooting on Wednesday, making 4-of-17 from the field for 17 points with 12 rebounds, eight assists and three steals.

He gets a partial excuse here because DeMarre Carroll D'd him up very well. George was taking too many contested jumpers, which is by far a bigger concern than his health. He will be posting bigger lines than this one.
