Paul George scored 21 points during a 101-83 Game 6 victory over the Raptors on Friday, adding 11 rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.
This was basically the bizarro version of Game 5. The Pacers got red hot in the second half with an 18-0 run to put the game out of reach. George checked out with 3:08 left due to garbage time, so he would've been at 43 minutes had the game been close. There was talk of him playing 48 minutes before this game, so he'll likely be in the 43-48 range in Game 7 on Sunday. You almost have to start him in DFS. Apr 29 - 11:07 PM

Coach Frank Vogel won't commit to playing Paul George 48 minutes on Friday.

Vogel did say the second unit will have a shorter leash. In Game 5, the Pacers had an unfathomable 7.8 offensive rating in the seven minutes without George. That was ultimately their undoing, so George is a good bet to play at least 44 minutes tonight. He's almost a must-play option in DFS.

Paul George says he's willing to play 48 minutes in Game 6 in Indiana on Friday.

"If that's the direction that the game is going, I'm all for it," George said. "Whatever we got to do to win, I'm doing it." Coach Frank Vogel already hinted that he will play him all 48 minutes "if necessary," as PG-13 was a +15 in 41 minutes in Tuesday's loss. DFS owners can feel good about locking George into lineups tonight.

Frank Vogel hinted that Paul George may be on the court for all 48 minutes during Friday's Game 6 against the Raptors.

"If necessary," Vogel said when asked if George could play 48 minutes in Game 6. "We'll see tomorrow night." PG-13 was phenomenal during Game 5, matching his playoff career-high with 39 points, but the Pacers really struggled any time he wasn't on the floor. Game 6 is a must-win game for Indiana, so it wouldn't be surprising to see George play a hefty amount of minutes.
Apr 28 - 2:48 PM

Paul George matched his playoff career high with 39 points in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors, shooting 11-of-19 from the field and 12-of-12 from the line.

He was a +15 in 41 minutes and added eight rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers, yet the Pacers still lost by three because George didn't have much help and they were torched every time he went to the bench for a quick rest. The Pacers were up by as many as 17 points, but they were outscored 25-9 in the fourth quarter and now trail the Raptors 3-2 in the series. PG-13 has been the best player in this series and he will look to tie things up in Indiana for Game 6 on Friday.
Apr 26 - 9:47 PM

Paul George scored 19 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one turnover and one 3-pointer against the Raptors on Saturday.

He kept his word to trust his teammates more in this game. George wasn't terrible with efficiency, making 6-of-16 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line in this win. He should be a decent DFS play almost any night, but his price has really been on the rise. It won't be easy for him to match his expectations after Game 1 and 2.
Apr 23 - 6:36 PM

Paul George scored 25 points with 10 rebounds in Thursday's 101-85 loss to the Raptors, adding six assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

The Pacers are now losing the series 2-1, so Game 4 on Saturday in Indiana is basically a must-win game. As for PG-13, he's feasting against the Raptors and was coming into tonight's game with averages of 30.5 points, 4.0 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.0 blocks, 2.5 steals and 3.0 3-pointers in the first two games of the series.
Apr 21 - 11:07 PM

Paul George scored 28 points during a Game 2 98-87 loss to the Raptors on Monday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He had it working in the third quarter again, but George didn't get much help. Monta Ellis with his 15 points was the only other Pacer in double-digit scoring. George was pretty efficient in this game, making 8-of-15 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line. George really struggled against the Raptors during the regular season, but he's got it going. He's also been better at home, so expect another solid outing in Game 3.
Apr 18 - 10:00 PM

Paul George dominated the Raptors during a 100-90 Game 1 win in Toronto on Saturday, scoring 33 points with four rebounds, six assists, four steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers.

He was en fuego in the third quarter with 17 points in that frame to propel the Pacers offense after a shaky start. George also scored 27 points in the second half, which is more than DeMar DeRozan (14) and Kyle Lowry (11) scored in the entire game. Interestingly, PG was terrible against the Raptors during the season, making just 30.8 percent from the field. Don't expect him to be as good as he was today, but Playoffs Paul George looks like it could be a thing.
Apr 16 - 4:28 PM

The Pacers will start George Hill, Monta Ellis, Paul George, Lavoy Allen and Ian Mahinmi vs. the Raptors on Saturday.

DeMar DeRozan and DeMarre Carroll will both spend time guarding George in this series, but PG-13 is still the best fantasy option for Indiana and it's not even close. George averaged 23.1 points, 7.0 boards, 4.1 assists, 1.9 steals and 2.6 3-pointers during the regular season.
Apr 16 - 12:16 PM

Paul George, Monta Ellis, George Hill and Ian Mahinmi will not play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

The Pacers will start Ty Lawson, Rodney Stuckey, Solomon Hill, Lavoy Allen and Myles Turner. It seemed like there was a chance George would have at least suited up to get him to 82 games, but he'll prepare for the postseason.
Apr 13 - 6:36 PM

Paul George and George Hill each scored 19 points in Tuesday's win over the Knicks.

Paul had four rebounds, six assists and a 3-pointer, and Hill added three 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in the win. The Heat beat the Pistons tonight so Detroit is No. 8 and the Pacers are the No. 7 seed. That means neither team has anything to play for on Wednesday, so look for plenty of rest for both teams. The Pacers will face the Raptors in Round 1 of the playoffs.
Apr 12 - 9:28 PM

Paul George will play Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

Head coach Frank Vogel conceded that George's sore ankle is still bothering him, but with the No. 7 seed out East still a possibility, the Pacers will go with everyone available to try and secure a win. PG-13 will draw a very favorable matchup, so go ahead and get him active.
Apr 12 - 5:36 PM

Paul George is expected to play against the Knicks on Tuesday.

George was a rest candidate headed into the Pacers last two games of the season, but it sounds like he'll be on the court on Tuesday. While George is still worth a start for his fantasy owners, he may see his minutes limited with C.J. Miles and Solomon Hill getting some extra run.
Apr 12 - 11:28 AM

Paul George is a candidate to sit out the final two games of Indiana's regular season.

PG-13 said he'd talk to the coaches and training staff about whether it was more important to keep the seven seed or to get some extra rest, so we may not get an update on his status until Tuesday. If George does elect to sit for the last two contests, C.J. Miles and Solomon Hill would see more minutes with Monta Ellis receiving an indirect boost in short-term value, as well.
