Paul George totaled 41 points (15-20 FG, 3-6 3PT, 8-8 FT), thirteen rebounds, six assists, and three steals in the Suns’ 116-102 loss to the Suns on Monday.
George looks to stay "up" after the Clippers' win over the Suns in Game Five of the Western Conference Finals. You know, George has been the best player on the floor for the majority of the games played post Kawhi Leonard's exit. At this point, it would be hard to see that changing. It looks as if the only person that could stop him is himself. George did start off slow this past game, which the sportscasters heavily commented on. It was hilarious to experience their tone change as he posted his best real-life and fantasy-life performance since the beginning of the playoffs. The Suns could opt to over commit to slowing George down, but his ability to get to the line and snag rebounds could be more impactful in elevating his value than their efforts to limit his. Unless the basketball gods wish to add some drama tonight and have him put up a high-floor performance almost rivaled by a Reggie Jackson effort, George should have his way with the Suns and be at least the second top play on the floor.
Paul George totaled 23 points (5-20 FG, 1-9 3PT, 12-18 FT), sixteen rebounds, six assists, and one steal in the Clippers’ 84-80 loss to the Suns on Saturday.
George will look to keep the team’s finals hopes alive after the Clippers’ loss to the Suns in Game Four of the Western Conference Finals. Even though he has been producing from a fantasy standpoint, he has been underwhelming in his shot-making. If it not been for his ability to get on the Charity Stripe, his numbers could be dramatically different. George will look to pull together a Kawhi Leonard-esk performance to help power his team to a saving Game Six but will more than likely have to find a way to get more production from the team’s role players to take back the momentum from the Suns. Is he the best player on the court tonight? He could be barring any sudden outburst from secondary plays.
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.
Paul George totaled 26 points (10-23 FG, 1-8 3PT, 5-10 FT), six rebounds, and six assists in the Clippers’ 104-103 loss to the Suns on Tuesday.
George looks to right the "ship" after the Clippers' loss to the Suns in Game Two of the Western Conference Finals. He is a special talent who will no doubt be a key asset to leverage for your fantasy success; however, he can only do but so much on his own. George will more than likely continue to put up strong performance lines, as he will be one of if not the best player on the court any given night.
Paul George totaled 34 points (10-26 FG, 7-15 3PT, 7-8 FT), four rebounds, five assists, one block, and two steals in the Clippers’ 120-114 loss to the Suns on Sunday.
George readies for a better Game Two after the Clippers' loss to the Suns in Game One of the Western Conference Finals. His performance was fantastic, but just not enough to get the job done against a "clicking" Suns team. From a fantasy perspective, it is encouraging to see that he has been able to maintain his strong form, but he will need to find a way to help elevate the team's production if they hope to keep this series competitive. Paul will be one of the best plays on most nights but may have some degree of regression that could make it difficult to determine how he should be positioned in your roster.
