Paul George poured in a season-high 39 points on Wednesday, sinking 15-of-21 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with six 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and three steals.
PG went 6-of-10 from deep tonight, helping the Pacers avoid a losing streak by beating the Hornets 98-77. George and Nate McMillan both said after Tuesday's loss that the Pacers hadn't played "the right way" vs. the Knicks. "Stop moving the ball, start taking quick shots, stop screening. Stop defending. Stop playing together," McMillan said. "When you don’t play the game the right way, you show up looking like that." They solved those problems tonight, and despite the team's inconsistency, George's owners have been enjoying top-20 value since the All-Star break.
