Paul George says he was able to get by Kobe Bryant because 'he's old'

Paul is keeping it 100. The Los Angeles Lakers battled the Indiana Pacers down the stretch, but ultimately fell 89-87 in Kobe Bryant's final game in Indianapolis. The Pacers were in the minority of teams that haven't given Bryant some type of tribute in his final swing around the NBA, but star forward Paul George offered a tribute of his own, telling Shane Young of Basketball Breakdown that he modeled "everything" in his game after the soon to retire superstar while growing up in Southern California. Just like he probably dreamed about as a child, George dueled with his idol in the fourth...

Pacers final score: Pacers top Pistons 112-104

A wire-to-wire victory put Indiana back in the win column thanks to a 30 point night from Paul George. George Hill had 17 and Myles Turner scored 16. The Indiana Pacers scored their first wire-to-wire victory of the season against the Detroit Pistons, though not without its tense moments. Despite a dominant first two and a half quarters, the Pacers were in need of a strong close to put away the Pistons. Hot shooting allowed Indiana to jump out to a double figure lead, one that swelled up to 20 in the third quarter. But Paul George was hit with his fourth foul at the 6:22 mark of the third,...

Pacers final score: Hawks hold off Pacers 102-96

The Pacers falter late again, falling in Atlanta despite 31 points from Paul George and a 14 point, 14 rebound double double from Lavoy Allen. A fourth quarter lead proved all for naught for the Indiana Pacers, who fell short late against the Atlanta Hawks. The Pacers did so many things right and still found an uncanny way to lose. Indiana throttled Atlanta in second chance points 21-0, waxed them on the glass with 19 offensive boards and a +21 rebounding advantage, and hit 13 three pointers on the night. But yet they came out in the loss column. Why? While Indiana did the big things, there...

Sizing up Hawks-Pacers with Indy Cornrows

Peachtree Hoops and Indy Cornrows discuss the return of Paul George, Myles Turner and the Pacers' playoff potential in preparation for tonight's game. Tom Lewis of Indy Cornrows stopped by to answer a few questions before tonight's 7 pm ET tip-off in Atlanta. Daniel Christian: Obviously, the biggest difference between last year and this year for the Pacers is the return of Paul George. He changes everything. But some other additions, like Monta Ellis, have been important too. Given that the Pacers have been relatively healthy, do you think they've lived up to expectations this year? What...

LeBron James beats the clock with steal, dunk

Just before the half, LeBron James picked Paul George's pocket and turned the steal into two points. Just before the half, LeBron James blew up an Indiana Pacers pick and roll, stole the ball and finished with a soaring dunk on the other end with just 1.4 seconds left on the clock. "James the steal...James the dunk." @NBATV #NBARapidReplay #CLEatIND https://t.co/6gW9MQT9Bz — NBA (@NBA) February 2, 2016 The dunk gave LeBron a game-high 17 first half points and gave the Cavs their 59th and 60th first half points.

The Pacers are about to start winning again

Recently uncovered evidence suggests winning time is on its way to BLF. As you all very well know, the Pacers are coming off a dreadful stretch of basketball in which they bumbled their way to a 7-13 record from December 19th to January 26th. Two consecutive wins against the Hawks and Nuggets have helped to re-sweeten the scent, but there's still a strong stench of Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda surrounding the Blue and Gold's recent performance. You can point to several reasons why the losses have piled up: late-game miscues, a below-average Paul George, injuries and absences, and an unsettled...

Too much is being expected of Paul George

As Paul George struggles to find consistency while battling fatigue, Larry Bird chooses to emphasize mind over matter when the root of the problem might more be heightened expectations. Two weeks ago, a bad game got worse against the Washington Wizards when Paul George momentarily left the court during the fourth quarter due to tightness behind his right knee. Then, eight days later in Sacramento, he was seen having his legs stretched by the team's athletic trainer, and he later told the Indy Star's Candace Buckner that he "took a couple blows" to his left leg and it started to "swell...

Paul George loves Benihana

A new report shows which NBA players love Japanese-American restaurant Benihana, with Paul George being extremely successful during games after he eats at the chain. Until today, I had never heard of Benihana. Apparently it's a restaurant similar to House of Kobe, which is another Japanese-American restaurant near me. Well, NBA players probably eat from the chain more often than the rest of the American public. A new report by Vocativ shows that NBA players often tweet- and often eat -at Benihana. The Pacers side of the story, is that Paul George is incredibly successful in games after he...

Pacers Links: Pacers have nothing to lose by pairing Myles Turner and Ian Mahimi

Myles Turner isn't the solution to all of the Pacers problems this season, but expanding the 19-year-old rookie's role shouldn't be a problem for the Pacers. There were so many favorable numbers for the Pacers on Tuesday night, that it is hard to look at the stat sheet without assuming they won until you look at the ultimate stat -- Final score: Clippers 91, Pacers 89. The Pacers outrebounded the Clips, outscored them in the paint 38-14 and in transition 9-5. Sure the Pacers missed 10 free throws, but the Clips missed 12. Paul George scored 31 points and the Pacers held the Clips to 91...

Pacers final score: Clippers edge Pacers 91-89

Indiana still can't win close games late, never getting a final look at the basket thanks to bad inbound play, falling to the LA Clippers by two. Paul George had 31 for the Pacers. The Indiana Pacers failed to make plays late, securing yet another close loss, this time to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Pacers went scoreless for the first 5:30 of the fourth quarter, allowing the Clippers to build an 81-72 lead, far too much for the Pacers to overcome despite a good close to the game by Paul George, who led Indiana with 31 points on 12-23 shooting. The Pacers botched an inbound pass with 2.1...

Report: Fatigue 'weighing on' Paul George

Paul George scored 34 points in Sacramento but fatigue continues keep his body from responding as hoped midway through the season. Paul George continues to complain about the wear and tear of his comeback season bringing his game back down to terra firma. While he's still scoring cashing in his 20 points per game, simply watching him play exposes how he's struggling. There's no need to look at the stat sheet which also reveals those 20 point games don't come nearly as easy as they did in November. PG is often asked about how he's feeling and is always accommodating with an answer. Normally,...

Pacers final score: Kings hold off Pacers 108-97

DeMarcus Cousins exploded for 48 points to lead Sacramento past Indiana. Paul George led Indiana with 34. A slow start for the Indiana Pacers once again put them in an inescapable hole, putting them into the loss column for the second straight game without holding a lead. DeMarcus Cousins and the Sacramento Kings scorched the Pacers to open the game at 22-8, and though Indiana made pushes in the second and third quarters, they could never overcome the deficit. There were some positive individual performances for the Pacers, but none of that mattered in the face of the complete dominance of...

Paul George's third NBA All-Star selection his most impressive in comeback season

The Pacers star wasted little time returning to All-Star form after missing last season which makes is remarkable when you stop to consider the comeback his body is making this season. Any preview of the Pacers season this year revolved around one question: How well could Paul George play after missing last season with a broken leg? PG answered that question in a hurry, sprinting out of the gate to play better than he ever did before his injury, scoring almost 30 points per game in November and making nearly half his three-point attempts. The answer was so quick and forceful it was easy to...

Recommended Reading for Paul George's Hypothetical "Hot Tub Book Club"

What books would the Pacers benefit from having on the reading list for Paul George's hypothetical Hot Tub Book Club? By now you have probably seen the short film Nike released on Christmas Day wherein four kids set out to determine who their favorite player is by going straight to the source, the players themselves: LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Elena Delle Donne, Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis, Kobe Bryant and Paul George, who is shown, rather predictably, fishing on a yacht. Seen gathering around him for "hot tub book club time," Peanut, Shawn, Toni, and Angel soon find out that George's...
