Midway through the first quarter of GM2 between the Cavs and Pacers, Paul George blew by Kyrie Irving, went down the middle and threw down a vicious dunk. Tristan Thompson was wise enough to move at the last second so he wouldn’t end up on a PG13 poster.
Midway through the second quarter, Paul George blew by Channing Frye, went down the middle and tried to throw down another vicious dunk. Unlike Thompson, Kevin Love tried to take a charge and almost ended up on a disgusting poster and in a coffin. The refs showed no Love for Love’s defensive effort, called a blocking foul and George ended up with two points from the free throw line.
Watching George, who finished the night with 32 points, 8 boards and 7 assists, make and miss dunks like this brings back some great memories of George making posters out of LeBron’s former teammates, like Chris “Birdman” Anderson in GM2 of the 2013 series between the Pacers and Heat.
