Paul George scored 19 points in Monday's win over the Pelicans, but only shot 6-of-17 from the field.
PG-13 added six assists, five rebounds, two steals, two triples and three turnovers in 34 minutes, but he's really cooled off in his last three games. He's averaging 16.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 2.6 steals and 1.6 triples in that span, shooting a combined 15-of-45 from the field (33.3 percent). He has two cupcake matchups against the Kings and Lakers up next, so expect him to get it going sooner rather than later. Jan 16 - 7:20 PM

Paul George had a brutal game in London against the Nuggets in a 140-112 loss on Thursday, making 2-of-12 from the field for 10 points with four rebounds, three assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

On top of the horrible offensive game, George was lost several times on the defensive end. We see a lot of teams come out flat when they play overseas, so feel free to chalk this dud up to that. George was shooting the ball really well over his last six games with a 50.0 field goal percentage, so expect him to get it going again on Monday against the Pelicans. He gets four games next week after just getting one this week.
Jan 12 - 5:23 PM

Paul George scored 19 points in a win over the Knicks on Saturday, adding three rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

This win gives the Pacers a five-game winning streak to move them to the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference. Sure, it helps that they only faced the Knicks, Nets, Pistons, Magic and Bulls to get these wins, but they deserve a lot of credit after a four-game losing streak before this new one. As for George, he made all four attempts from the line tonight and ranks second in the NBA for free throw percentage at 92.1 -- Stephen Curry is first at 93.1. PG013 is holding steady as a top-15 player.
Jan 7 - 9:47 PM

Paul George hit 10-of-17 shots and two 3-pointers for 32 points, six rebounds, two assists and two blocks in Tuesday's 121-116 win over the Pistons.

He's now scored 32 or 34 points in three of his last four games and hit at least 50 percent of his shots in all three 30-point outings. He failed to score more than 19 points in a three-game stretch around Christmas, but has since found his shot and is on fire right now.
Jan 3 - 10:42 PM

Paul George scored 32 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Bulls during a 111-101 win on Friday.

He buried the Bulls late with 11 points in the fourth. After a mini slump coming into the week, George is back with two consecutive games with at least 32 points. He has been off the ball slightly more in that span with 10 attempts from deep in each game. Jeff Teague being more on the ball than George Hill should open up PG-13 a little more often. So far, it's really helped his field goal percentage and that looks like it'll continue.

Paul George scored 34 points in 37 minutes against the Wizards during a 111-105 loss on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, four assists and six 3-pointers

He was in a mini-funk and was unable to hit 20 points in any of his previous three games. This comes after George had a minor left ankle tweak, so the overly-concerned folks may have been worried the ankle issue from November popped up again. With this big game and not even turning it over, George looks like he's ready to put up big stats again. The bad news is the Pacers have lost four straight.

Paul George hit just 6-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 14 points, three rebounds, eight assists and a steal in 39 minutes of Monday's loss to the Bulls.

George is in a funk right now, scoring no more than 19 points in any of his last three games and hitting just 17-of-47 shots over that stretch. He should get hot soon, but he's not been nearly the player he was at the start of the season lately. Thaddeus Young and Myles Turner were the only other Pacers in double figures tonight and not a single Pacer recorded a double-double in the 90-85 loss.

Paul George (ankle) is expected to play on Monday against the Bulls.

The Pacers and the Knicks are the only two teams off today, and the Pacers don't play on Christmas. In other words, George's ankle tweak comes at the right time. He appeared to be fine after the game and was OK to practice on Friday. He should be all set for a divisional game.

Paul George tweaked his left ankle against the Celtics on Thursday and was able to return, finishing with 19 points on 5-of-16 from the field with eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and five turnovers.

Marcus Smart was playing very tight defense and George had an awkward landing with his left leg. It was great to see he was able to stay in the game, especially because George's left ankle cost him the final three games in November. As for the poor game, the Celtics did a great job on him, but expect him to be better on Monday against the Bulls. That time off should help his ankle, too.

Paul George was ineffective on Tuesday night in a loss to the Knicks, scoring 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting, with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and three turnovers.

It was surprising PG-13 couldn't find his groove on Tuesday, as he entered the evening playing his best basketball of the season. He was averaging 24.9 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.8 3-pointers over the Pacers previous eight games. George will look to bounce back on Thursday when the Pacers host the Celtics.
Tue, Dec 20, 2016 11:20:00 PM

Paul George scored 26 points during a 105-90 win over the Pistons on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He needed just 34 minutes to do the damage against the Eastern Conference's best defense. George hasn't been going to line lately with only 3.8 attempts over his last four games, but his efficiency has been solid thanks to him connecting on jumpers. The Pacers are up to the seventh seed in the East while George now has top-20 value per game on the season. That time off to rest his ankle seems to be paying off.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 10:07:00 PM

Paul George scored 18 points with four rebounds, four assists, two steals, five turnovers and two 3-pointers against the Pelicans on Thursday.

The output on the glass is his lowest in a game since October and his turnovers are one off his season high. George has not seen his minutes drop whatsoever since his ankle sprain, averaging 36.3 per game since then. He'll get a tough matchup against the Pistons and their second-ranked defense on Saturday.
Thu, Dec 15, 2016 10:58:00 PM

Paul George scored 22 points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three triples in Monday's win over the Hornets.

This was the second straight win for Indiana. George was coming off a 37-point performance in his previous game and he was able to stay hot from the field, sinking 9-of-17 field goals with four turnovers in 36 minutes. PG-13 has a combined 11 3-pointers over his last three games and he's going to have the ball in his hands a bit more moving forward with Monta Ellis (groin) out for a few games.
Mon, Dec 12, 2016 10:11:00 PM

Paul George went off for 37 points on 13-of-27 shooting in Saturday's 118-111 win over the Blazers.

He played 36 minutes Saturday despite logging 40 minutes the previous night, adding five rebounds, three assists, three steals and five triples with a pair of turnovers. He also hit 6-of-7 free throws on the night. The Pacers have been inconsistent, but George hasn't, scoring 21+ points in each of his last four games. On a side note, the Pacers became just the second team to overcome a 20-point deficit this season.

Paul George scored 25 points during a 109-94 win over the Suns on Wednesday, adding 13 rebounds, one assist, three steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

The Pacers were really attacking during this game for a season-high 41 attempts from the line. George himself made 8-of-10 and after the game he said he wanted to put pressure on the refs to make the calls. He also had an interesting comment on the heels of a blowout loss with Klay Thompson's 60 points. "We're the opposite of the Warriors. We got drivers," George said on the Suns TV broadcast. Now that George is back and healthy, expect him to fill up the box score.
