Paul George dropped 22 points in a full line on Wednesday but the Pacers couldn’t off the shorthanded Grizzlies, losing 97-110.
George did all he could in the defeat, going 8-of-17 from the floor and adding three 3-pointers, three boards, four assists, two steals and two blocks to his scoring output. He’s been absolutely spectacular in March, returning top-10 value over his past month and propelling head-to-head owners into poll position in threes and steals. While the grumblings coming from the Pacers’ locker room likely won’t improve after this loss in which George got little help he’ll remain an elite fantasy option going forward.
