That’s how you close out an eight seed. 30 points. 11 rebounds. 3 assists. 2 steals. 11-of-23 shooting. The game and series wasn’t pretty, but Paul George was Indiana’s ‘Mr. Reliable’. Playoff Teague morphed back into Jeff Teague whenever George matched up with him. His seven-foot wingspan and pterodactyl like instincts closed off Teague’s driving lanes and shot trajectories. Lockdown.
Here’s what he’s averaging through seven games: 23.9 points, 10.7 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2.4 steals. 45 percent shooting from the field. 40 percent from distance and 82 percent at the charity stripe. Check his series shot chart below.
75.9 percent at the rim? Nice. That number is close to what Durant and LeBron shot during the regular season. Keep that up.
