Paul George finished with 26 points (8-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go along with four rebounds and two assists over 30 minutes as the Clippers blew out the Kings 138-100 on Friday.
George continues to fill it up in January. Through seven games this month, George has scored less than 25 points just once (21 vs. Golden State on 1/6). He's off to a special start so far by averaging 25.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 1.3 steals per game while shooting at an insanely high clip: 50.3-percent FG, 51.5-percent 3Pt, and 91.8-percent FT.
Paul George ended up with 27 points (8-16 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six rebounds, six assists, and one block across 38 minutes in the Clippers 111-106 win over the Pelicans on Wednesday.
This is the type of sharp and efficient performances that fantasy managers have come to expect from George all season. Apart from a couple of clunkers back in late December, PG has been locked in. He's sporting career bests in FG percentage (49.7), three-point percentage (51.2), and free-throw percentage (91.7). He is also averaging a career-worst 4.0 turnovers a game but we can live with that.
Paul George amassed 28 points (8-19 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 7-9 FT), nine assists, seven rebounds, and two steals over 40 minutes as the Clippers held on to beat the Bulls 130-127 on Sunday.
George took a backseat to teammate Kawhi Leonard (35 points) on the offensive front after leading the Clippers in scoring in 7-of-11 games to start the year. PG still had an awesome game, matching a season-high with nine assists, and knocking down five three-pointers for the fourth time in the last five games. George is playing some of the best basketball of his career.
Paul George provided 25 points (9-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, and one block across 39 minutes as the Clippers lost to the Warriors 115-105 on Friday.
George once again led the Clippers in scoring, which is becoming a recurring theme for the 30-year-old. The problem tonight was that the Clippers' bench was outscored by the Warriors' 42-20. PG has now scored at least 23 points in four of five games and made five or more three-pointers in three of five. He's rewarding fantasy owners that used an early pick on him so far. He's currently a top-10 player in category leagues.
Paul George scored 21 points (5-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 9-9 FT) with 12 rebounds, two assists, and one steal across 39 minutes as the Clippers defeated the Warriors 108-101 on Wednesday.
George missed Tuesday's game with a sore ankle and it looked a little rusty shooting the rock tonight (33-percent from the field). Other than that, he looked no worse for the wear as he logged a team-high 39 minutes and picked up his second double-double of the season with 21 points and 12 boards. Fantasy managers have come to expect great thing from PG this season as he's been playing some of the best basketball of his career. The Clips play these same Warriors again on Friday.
