Philadelphia vs Indiana Pacers by Rahul
We already knew Paul George could score in buckets, and he is already showing that signs by averaging 28 points over his last 5 games. George faced defenders like LeBron James, Tayshaun Prince, Tobais Harris, Jay Crowder and Tony Snell/McDermott over that period of time; and has been able to play well against all of them during those past 5 games. As the primary offensive weapon in this team, his team mates are always looking for him, as a result he attempts a team high 18 shots per game, knocking down around 9. He also takes around 8 free throws per game, knocking down 7 of them; which shows you how he can get those 25 points tonight.
The 76ers are off to a poor 0-11 start, and their defenders in Grant and Holmes have failed to put on a stop to players at the small forward position. They conceded to 17 to Fournier18 points to McDermott, 14 to DeRozan, 12 to Morrow, 10 to Anderson, 20 to Chandler Parsons and 31 to LeBron James. Out of all you can count James, Parsons and to a certain extent DeRozan as good players.
If they were able to get off well, I don't expect anything less than 26 points for George tonight, especially since George Hill is missing, where he will have to take on the extra scoring burden.
