Nah, he's trying to tell you to wait longer than 1 quarter before overreacting.

Huh?

He posted this on twitter the day after that Kings game Put up 500 jump shots.. #NewRoutine gotta get my s--- back! http://instagr.am/p/SwdgUunMqA/ Be patient with him.

That's the way the Pacers play. Really plodding, late 90s kind of basketball. Very hard team to watch. Hibbert and West are two of the slowest guys in the league, so that's also part of the reason they never get out in transition.

Also, Lance Stephenson. Talk about a guy who plays like a chicken with its head cut off.

Granger should help that team a lot offensively. Indiana averaged nearly 98 PPG last season playing a similar style. They're averaging only 91 PPG this season. Granger's an excellent 3 point shooter and can get to the line, so that should help everyone on this offense, especially George, get some easier looks. Because they're downright painful offensively right now.

And not to get too off topic but Tyler hansbrough is a black hole offensively.

Credit to George though, even when hes slumping he's determined to shoot his way out of it. sometimes it works out like against the heat the other night, but as all PG owners know he'll have the occasional 4-18 game.

He also makes up for it with his activity on defense and the boards. This guy performs like an elite defender. He ought to be on the all-defensive team this year.

Yep, 9 rebs, 6 stls, 1 blk so far tonight and he has managed to shoot himself out of the slump and is at 43% FG right now.

Another steal leading to a layup.

What a stud!

I hope he continues to work hard and work on his game because he has so much potential.

Btw, do you guys think Paul George is deserving of an all star spot this year?

Yeah I love how George plays. He settles for a lot of jumpers when he should probably attack, but when he gets hot he's scorching hot (9 threes in one game this season).

But the main thing is his overall activity. He crashes the boards on every single shot on both ends. You don't see that from many perimeter players in this league. Elite defender too. Don't let jr's points fool you tonight, PG has locked him up and his only points came off screens or ridiculous fadeaways. Amazing defense

He's really playing well defensively. He was just smothering JR Smith. It would be unfortunate if he doesn't get some consideration for first team All-Defense.

He has improved quite a bit defensively this year. He isn't making quite as many silly fouls. He seems more patient on defense.

How do you guys see him once Granger comes back? Still top 25?

I don't think he'll be affected. His value isn't based on PPG. It's based on 3s, boards, steals, and solid amount of dimes, all of which he should maintain with Granger. In fact, George's efficiency should go up and should get cleaner looks with Granger there. Indiana's offense was dramatically better overall with Granger in the lineup last year than it is this season, so he should have a net positive on the lineup offensively. Should be a positive for George.
