Paul George has managed to carry the undermanned Oklahoma City Thunder with an awesome performance and has recently become one of my favorite players in the league as he had provided spectacular highlights and the ability to carry a team. Paul George has managed to get OKC three wins in a row without his superstar team mate Russell Westbrook. The tightly contested matchup between Oklahoma City Thunder and the Phoenix Suns allowed Paul George to step up and run his own team which is had very few moments to do in his career. The Pheonix Suns were no match for the Thunder losing the ball game 110-100 giving them their 12th loss of the season which is not good for the organisation as only 15 games have been played.
Paul George lifted the Thunder to a win scoring 32 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals, and 3 blocks showing his ability to be everywhere on the floor and help his team mates in any way possible to get the victory. The Kiwi Steven Adams stepped up big time scoring 26 points which is huge for the big man, 10 rebounds, and 1 assists which is really good to see as New Zealand is close to home and I always root for his to achieve good things in the NBA. T.J Warren was the only stand out from the Phoenix Suns who impressed me throughout the game because I have never seen him before. Warren scored 23 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block providing the only good performance from the Suns squad. Next the Oklahoma City Thunder face the Sacramento Kings which should be a very interesting contest and we will see if Paul George can get the Thunder their 4th win in a row without Westbrook. The Phoenix Suns will next go up against the Philadelphia 76ers who have been in red hot form and will be hard to beat for the Suns.
Paul George has really impressed me this season and I remember how good he was in Indiana against Lebron and Wade and that championship Heat squad. He suffered a very bad injury and has now finally found himself in a team with a superstar and a squad capable of doing great things.
