For awhile it looked like that was not going to happen Wednesday night in New York, but than Paul George started strutting his stuff.
With the team down by three and seconds left in the game George was fouled attempting a three pointer--and made all three to send the game to overtime. George put the team ahead with a three pointer to start the scoring and the Pacers never trailed again.
On the night George scored 35 points along with five rebounds, four assists, five steals, and a pair of blocks. So if you are wondering whether he is worth the five-year, $90 million extension the Pacers gave him the answer is an emphatic yes.
The Pacers have Thursday night off before facing the Celtics in Boston on Friday.
