Paul George rebounds to lift Thunder to 107-100 win over the Lakers - Jan 3, 2019

Paul George
Paul George (6'9''-G/F-90, college: Fresno St.)'s shot swished, and Russell Westbrook (6'3''-PG-88, college: UCLA) turned, leaned back, and strummed an air guitar. It was the signature celebration of Lance Stephenson, but Westbrook was using it to commend an and-one scored on the Lakers guard himself. George's bucket gave the Thunder a slight lead heading into halftime in what would become a 107-100 win over the Lakers. But more important than that lead, it was an undeniable sign that George was back to himself Wednesday at Staples Center. That rhythm he found had something to do with Westbrook. To be fair, the Lakers (21-17) were missing LeBron James (out with a groin injury). But the Thunder (24-13) overcame a 38.1-percent shooting night to claim the win on the back of George's 37 points. George didn't get to play his customary full first quarter. Thunder coach Billy Donovan had delayed subbing George out for as long as he could, sticking with him through two early fouls. 'He picked them up so early,' Donovan said, 'and I think you can break his rhythm and then he doesn't really manage his fouls and he never really finds a flow into the game.' With 3:12 left in the period, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (6'5''-G-93, college: Georgia) drove past George and George picked up his third foul. It was time to give him a break. Things had not been going well for George overall in the first quarter. He had made just two of his six shots, none of his 3-point attempts. He was clearly frustrated, clapping angrily after a layup arced over the rim. And every time he touched the ball the Lakers fans booed, making their displeasure known that he had stayed in Oklahoma City after being expected to leave for L.A. in free agency. 'The booing wasn't going to throw me off my game,' George said. 'I've been playing basketball for a really long time and a little booing and a little noise was not going to make me forget how to play basketball.' When George came back into the game in the second quarter, Westbrook made a point to get him the ball. Westbrook finished the night 3-of-20 from the field - but still finished the night with a triple-double (14 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists). One of them had to start scoring. With four minutes left in the first half, Westbrook sprinted down the court in transition and kicked a pass out to George for an open 3-pointer. He missed. The next offensive possession started much like the last. Westbrook slowed as he approached the rim, checking behind him to see if George was with him. He was. Westbrook dished a pass off to George, and he slammed down a dunk. George smacked the backboard and received a technical foul. Worth it. George made the next three shots he took, ending with a shot over Stephenson. He set himself up this time, picking Stephenson's pocket without regard of the three fouls he had already accrued. Stephenson met him at the other end of the court, and George spun, recovered, launched a jump shot and drew a foul. Cue the air guitar. The Lakers fans got creative with their heckling of George in the last two minutes and 17 seconds of the game. He stood on the line and sank two free throws as they chanted 'We don't need you.' Seconds later he threw down an emphatic dunk. The Lakers fans may have felt they didn't need him, but the Thunder were happy to have him.

Jimmy Butler (6'7''-G/F-89, college: Marquette) will decline his player option for the 2019/20 season and hit the free agent market, sources tell Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. The Sixers have been expecting Butler to take this route.

Butler has previously expressed that he's confident a max contract awaits him in free agency. The Lakers have real...   [read more]
