Paul George continued to keep his name in MVP discussions (non-Stephen Curry division) with a career-high 48 points in Saturday’s overtime loss to the Jazz.
George hit 15-of-27 shots, 8-of-11 treys and 10-of-13 free throws to go with eight rebounds, three assists and three steals. It was crystal clear that his athleticism and skills were on par with previous seasons during the preseason, so don’t let anybody tell you that you were gambling when you took PG around the turn of the first and second rounds. He’s currently a top 6-7 value in fantasy leagues and we’re not fading him at all.
