Indiana Pacers‘ swingman Paul George continues to show that he is one of the game’s elite players.
George is averaging 23.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game.
Night in and night out, George not only puts up big numbers, but knocks down big shots.
On Friday night, he did it again.
George in-bounded the ball to power forward David West, who then handed the ball right back to George. George went to his left and drilled a three-pointer over Kings’ power forward Carl Landry, who may or may not have made contact. Although it was a close play, the official made the call and George went to the line where he calmly hit his free throw and tied the game with just over 15 seconds to go.
On the other end, Isiah Thomas couldn’t connect at the buzzer and the game went to overtime.
The Pacers fell behind the Kings by 11 after just one quarter. However, George, with some help from West and Lance Stephenson, who had a couple of big games themselves, they slowly chipped away at the lead in the second half.
