Paul George continued his strong play on Monday night, delivering 24 points, four triples, five rebounds, four assists and a steal on 8-of-15 shooting in a tight win over the Rockets.
The Thunder are now up to fifth in the West after all the talk about their struggles and seem to be jelling more and more with each passing game. George, despite sporting a career-low field goal percentage, remains an elite fantasy asset and won’t have any troubles grading out as a second round guy yet again. He gives you a little bit of everything on every night, and tonight’s efficiency helped make up for a lack of thefts from the league’s steals leader. If (or when) George’s shooting turns around, his owners are in for some kind of monster run.
