Dec. 13 7:04 PM PT8:04 PM MT9:04 PM CT10:04 PM ET3:04 GMT11:04 8:04 PM MST10:04 PM EST7:04 UAE (+1)04:0422:04 ET9:04 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 12 points Wednesday on 3-of-14 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder topped the Indiana Pacers 100-95. George pulled down two rebounds and dished out five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -3 in his 33:26 on the floor. He tacked on three steals. George went 2 of 7 from behind the arc.
Analysis: George made a winning return to Indiana, hitting the clinching free throws with 10.7 seconds left. George was booed loudly during introductions and every time he touched the ball. Fans only cheered for George when he was called for a foul or made a mistake and it seemed to take a toll on the four-time All-Star as he had a poor shooting night.
Dec. 7 7:53 AM PT8:53 AM MT9:53 AM CT10:53 AM ET15:53 GMT23:53 8:53 AM MST10:53 AM EST19:53 UAE16:5310:53 ET9:53 AM CTNaN:� - George (calf) returned from a two-game absence Monday and scored 20 points, going 7 of 14 from the field, as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Charlotte Hornets 116-103. George grabbed five rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -5 in his 33:56 on the floor. He tacked on one steal. George went 2 of 4 from behind the arc.
Analysis: This should ease any concerns owners may have had over the four-time All-Star's injury being a lingering issue. George has now hit the 20-point mark in four of his last five games, though the NBA's steals leader has just four during that same stretch.
Dec. 5 8:13 PM PT9:13 PM MT10:13 PM CT11:13 PM ET4:13 GMT12:13 9:13 PM MST11:13 PM EST8:13 UAE05:1323:13 ET10:13 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 21 points Tuesday on 7-of-13 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Utah Jazz 100-94. George pulled down three rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +7 in his 39:48 of playing time. He tacked on two steals. George went 2 of 3 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Two nights after being held to eight points on a woeful 2-for-17 shooting display by the Spurs' tough defense, George bounced back with a sharp effort against a Utah team that also guards well. The marquee offseason addition is still in a slump, having shot just 35.1 percent while averaging 17.5 points over his last six games, but he's still produced games of 36, 22 and 21 points during that run.
Dec. 4 7:58 AM PT8:58 AM MT9:58 AM CT10:58 AM ET15:58 GMT23:58 8:58 AM MST10:58 AM EST19:58 UAE16:5810:58 ET9:58 AM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored eight points Sunday on 2-of-17 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder topped the San Antonio Spurs 90-87.

Analysis: George struggled with foul trouble early and didn't score until early in the third quarter. The Thunder host the Jazz on Tuesday, and in their only matchup this season on Oct. 21, George had 22 points, five rebounds, five steals and six turnovers in a nine-point loss.
Dec. 2 9:40 PM PT10:40 PM MT11:40 PM CT12:40 AM ET5:40 GMT13:40 10:40 PM MST12:40 AM EST9:40 UAE06:400:40 ET11:40 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 36 points Friday, going 10 of 21 from the field, as the Oklahoma City Thunder topped the Minnesota Timberwolves 111-107. George pulled down four rebounds and dished out nine assists, tallying a plus-minus of +9 in his 42:05 of playing time. He added three blocks. George went 5 of 9 from 3-point range.
Analysis: After not attempting a single free throw during a three-game stretch last week, George is 17 of 18 from the foul line while amassing 58 points over his last two games. Though the versatile forward has just one steal during that span, he still leads the league in that category (55) in addition to going 19 of 47 (40.2 percent) from beyond the arc over his last six games.
Nov. 29 7:54 PM PT8:54 PM MT9:54 PM CT10:54 PM ET3:54 GMT11:54 8:54 PM MST10:54 PM EST7:54 UAE (+1)04:5422:54 ET9:54 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 22 points Wednesday on 7-of-17 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder lost to the Orlando Magic 121-108.

Analysis: George is capable of better but after Saturday's clunker, this performance was golden. He shot 7 of 17 after missing nine of 10 at Dallas on Saturday and has totaled 15 assists, 11 rebounds and five steals in his last two games.
Nov. 27 10:14 AM PT11:14 AM MT12:14 PM CT1:14 PM ET18:14 GMT2:14 11:14 AM MST1:14 PM EST22:14 UAE19:1413:14 ET12:14 PM CTNaN:� - George will play Wednesday against the Magic despite an illness.
Analysis: George, who was able to practice Tuesday after sitting out Monday, says he's "still under the weather a bit" but "well enough" to play.

George pulled down 11 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +8 in his 39:45 on the floor. He added two blocks and four steals. George went 4 of 10 from 3-point range.
Analysis: George's defense was more the story in this one, but the standout two-way forward still made his presence felt from a fantasy perspective. He's been the Thunder's best player over the past few weeks, producing stellar averages of 26 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.8 steals in his last six games. He's also a sizzling 26 of 53 (49.1 percent) from beyond the arc during that time frame.
Nov. 21 11:58 PM PT12:58 AM MT1:58 AM CT2:58 AM ET7:58 GMT15:58 12:58 AM MST2:58 AM EST11:58 UAE08:582:58 ET1:58 AM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 26 points Monday, going 9 of 17 from the field, as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the New Orleans Pelicans 114-107. George pulled down five rebounds and had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 36:03 of playing time. He tacked on five steals. George went 6 of 10 from behind the arc.
Analysis: After going a combined 9 of 31 from the floor while totaling 31 points over the Thunder's previous two games, George bounced back with a more customary performance. Now sixth in the league with 54 made 3-pointers and shooting 42.5 percent on trey attempts, the star forward is on pace to shatter his previous career bests in both categories in OKC's perimeter-based attack.
Nov. 18 10:01 AM PT11:01 AM MT12:01 PM CT1:01 PM ET18:01 GMT2:01 11:01 AM MST1:01 PM EST22:01 UAE19:0113:01 ET12:01 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 18 points Friday, going 5 of 16 from the field, as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the San Antonio Spurs 104-101. George grabbed seven rebounds and dished out six assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 42:09 of playing time. He tacked on three steals. George went 3 of 6 from behind the arc.
Analysis: George has shot 9 for 31 in his last two games. Friday, though, marked the third time in four games that he's had at least five assists and seven rebounds.
Nov. 16 7:26 AM PT8:26 AM MT9:26 AM CT10:26 AM ET15:26 GMT23:26 8:26 AM MST10:26 AM EST19:26 UAE16:2610:26 ET9:26 AM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 13 points Wednesday, going 4 of 15 from the field, as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Chicago Bulls 92-79. George pulled down five rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +7 in his 36:32 on the floor. He added one block. George went 2 of 8 from behind the arc.
Analysis: This was a disappointing fantasy performance after George had scored 42 and 37 points in his previous two games. We expect him to get back on track in his next game.
Nov. 13 7:30 AM PT8:30 AM MT9:30 AM CT10:30 AM ET15:30 GMT23:30 8:30 AM MST10:30 AM EST19:30 UAE16:3010:30 ET9:30 AM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 37 points Sunday, going 12 of 22 from the field, as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Dallas Mavericks 112-99. George pulled down eight rebounds and had five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +20 in his 42:10 on the floor. He added two steals. George went 7 of 12 from 3-point range.
Analysis: George stepped up with Carmelo Anthony out, and he's scored a total of 79 points in the last two games. He's shooting 50.5 percent in OKC's wins and just 40.5 percent in the Thunder's losses.
Nov. 11 9:48 PM PT10:48 PM MT11:48 PM CT12:48 AM ET5:48 GMT13:48 10:48 PM MST12:48 AM EST9:48 UAE06:480:48 ET11:48 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 42 points Friday on 13-of-22 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder topped the Los Angeles Clippers 120-111. George grabbed nine rebounds and dished out seven assists, tallying a plus-minus of +27 in his 41:45 of playing time. He tacked on three steals. George went 4 of 7 from behind the arc.
Analysis: George finally had that breakout game everyone knew was coming and it came after he totaled 25 points in his two previous contests. He set season highs in field goals, attempts and nearly had a triple-double with nine rebounds and seven assists.
Nov. 10 10:12 PM PT11:12 PM MT12:12 AM CT1:12 AM ET6:12 GMT14:12 11:12 PM MST1:12 AM EST10:12 UAE07:121:12 ET12:12 AM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 13 points Thursday on 6-of-14 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder lost to the Denver Nuggets 102-94.

Nov. 6 6:12 AM PT7:12 AM MT8:12 AM CT9:12 AM ET14:12 GMT22:12 7:12 AM MST9:12 AM EST18:12 UAE15:129:12 ET8:12 AM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 27 points Sunday, going 10 of 21 from the field, as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Portland Trail Blazers 103-99.

Nov. 4 9:00 AM PT10:00 AM MT11:00 AM CT12:00 PM ET16:00 GMT0:00 9:00 AM MST11:00 AM EST20:00 UAE17:0012:00 ET10:00 AM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 25 points Friday, going 9 of 20 from the field, as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Boston Celtics 101-94.

Oct. 31 8:28 PM PT9:28 PM MT10:28 PM CT11:28 PM ET3:28 GMT11:28 8:28 PM MST10:28 PM EST7:28 UAE (+1)04:2823:28 ET9:28 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 20 points Tuesday, going 8 of 17 from the field, as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 110-91. George pulled down three rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +16 in his 29:00 of playing time. He added one block and one steal. George went 4 of 8 from behind the arc.
Analysis: It's the third straight outing of at least 20 points for George, who's knocked down a terrific 11 of 19 shots from 3-point range during that hot stretch. The marquee offseason addition is now 21 of 52 on 3s, though he's still yet to top six rebounds in any of his first seven games.
Oct. 28 8:24 PM PT9:24 PM MT10:24 PM CT11:24 PM ET3:24 GMT11:24 8:24 PM MST10:24 PM EST7:24 UAE (+1)05:2423:24 ET10:24 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 20 points Saturday on 8-of-15 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Chicago Bulls 101-69.

Oct. 27 7:54 PM PT8:54 PM MT9:54 PM CT10:54 PM ET2:54 GMT10:54 7:54 PM MST9:54 PM EST6:54 UAE (+1)04:5422:54 ET9:54 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 23 points Friday on 8-of-16 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 119-116. George grabbed five rebounds and had four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -5 in his 38:21 on the floor. He added one block and two steals. George went 3 of 6 from 3-point range.
Analysis: George had a strong performance in the loss, hitting half his shots and half his 3-pointers. Since shooting 6 of 20 against Minnesota on Sunday, he has gone 12 for 24 from the field the past two games. George is still finding his role on a loaded Thunder team, and while the wins haven't been there, his game is rounding into form nicely.
Oct. 25 7:46 PM PT8:46 PM MT9:46 PM CT10:46 PM ET2:46 GMT10:46 7:46 PM MST9:46 PM EST6:46 UAE (+1)04:4622:46 ET9:46 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 10 points Wednesday on 4-of-8 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Indiana Pacers 114-96. George grabbed one rebound and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -2 in his 19:06 of playing time before fouling out. He added one block.
Analysis: George's first game against his former team was his worst of the season. He hardly made an impact with a season-low 10 points and one rebound. Since hitting 6 of 13 from long range in the season opener, George has gone 4 for 20 from deep.
Oct. 22 11:49 PM PT12:49 AM MT1:49 AM CT2:49 AM ET6:49 GMT14:49 11:49 PM MST1:49 AM EST10:49 UAE08:492:49 ET1:49 AM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 22 points Saturday on 8-of-19 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Utah Jazz 96-87. George grabbed five rebounds and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -14 in his 37:31 on the floor. He added five steals. George went 3 of 9 from 3-point range.
Analysis: George's outside shot wasn't falling quite as often after he began his Thunder tenure by hitting 6 of 13 tries from 3-point range while recording 28 points in Thursday's season opener. Getting shots hasn't been an issue for the star forward, and his low assist totals so far have been offset by his early propensity for steals.
Oct. 22 7:14 PM PT8:14 PM MT9:14 PM CT10:14 PM ET2:14 GMT10:14 7:14 PM MST9:14 PM EST6:14 UAE (+1)04:1422:14 ET9:14 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 14 points Sunday on 6-of-20 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 115-113. George grabbed six rebounds and dished out eight assists, tallying a plus-minus of -4 in his 37:27 of playing time. He tacked on four steals. George went 1 of 8 from behind the arc.
Analysis: George is struggling with his shot early on, as he's at 37.1 percent (23 of 62) in his first three games with the Thunder. Going 9 of 22 from deep in the first two contests, though, has helped him average 21.3 points.
Oct. 19 8:26 PM PT9:26 PM MT10:26 PM CT11:26 PM ET3:26 GMT11:26 8:26 PM MST10:26 PM EST7:26 UAE (+1)05:2623:26 ET10:26 PM CTNaN:� - Paul George scored 28 points Thursday on 9-of-23 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder topped the New York Knicks 105-84. George grabbed six rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +23 in his 39:06 on the floor. He added one block and one steal. George went 6 of 13 from behind the arc.
Analysis: George will be able to put up his usual numbers in Oklahoma City along side Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook. George averaged 23.7 points and 6.6 rebounds with Indiana last season.
