Paul George guards Derrick Rose & makes the no-look pass to Stephenson
“That’s a good start” said Pacers coach Frank Vogel after beating the Bulls by 17 and starting the season 5-0 for the first time since the 1971 season when they won a championship. That makes Frank’s statement an understatement and his best player, Paul George, is not longer underrated, under the radar or under any other player on the team. The league’s 3rd leading scorer did it all again last night, he scored 21 points, grabbed 6 rebounds, hit a couple of 3 pointers, played D on Derrick Rose and dished out a few nice assists like this one to Scola.
“Tmac2.0” is now third in the league in scoring and on his way to the All-NBA, All-Star and All-Defensive Team. As for his D on DRose, Derrick only made 6 of 15 shots, had 2 assists and turned the ball over 4 times in 27 minutes.
