Paul George totaled 27 points (9-26 FG, 3-11 3PT, 6-7 FT), fifteen rebounds, eight assists, and one steal in the Clippers’ 106-92 win over the Suns on Thursday.
George looks to grow the team’s momentum after the Clippers' win over the Suns in Game Three of the Western Conference Finals. He has embraced his leadership role, and it has paid off significantly for a gritty Clippers club. With Chris Paul back in the mix, it will be interesting to see how George's game will be impacted. On the one hand, if Paul can lock down Reggie Jackson and force offensive production to be created elsewhere, George could find himself, out of pure necessity, in a position to increase his offensive output. However, on the flip side, the Suns could opt to overcommit stopping George, choosing to live with Jackson's somewhat still fragile offensive production. In any case, he should still be fine in his fantasy production, but in tournaments where production composition is king, it would be worth taking the time to evaluate how he might make his bones in a pivotal Game Four.
