Earlier in the summer, Paul George said he wanted to be MVP this year. I know it’s just preseason, but PG13’s comeback season looks like it’s going to be a great one. On Tuesday vs the Pistons, George hit 5 consecutive 3-pointers and scored 20 points in the first quarter of a 115-112 victory.
“With a four on me, I have that confidence that I’m going to be able to get a shot,” George said. “When you got that confidence that you’re going to get a shot, you’re going to make those shots. My teammates did a great job of finding me. We have attackers and that lane is just wide open and it allows me to play freely.”
He finished the game with 32 points on 10 of 17 shooting in just 24 minutes.
