Indiana stays hot, trips Clippers 106-92
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Paul George put an emphatic 360-degree twist on the Pacers’ latest blowout.
Lob City’s stars just watched in amazement.
George scored 36 points, the last two on a reverse windmill dunk that brought fans to their feet and the Clippers to their knees in Indiana’s 106-92 rout Saturday night.
“It was just instinctive,” George said after helping to end the Clippers’ five-game winning streak. “I wanted to put on a show for the fans.”
The entire season has been a showcase for the Pacers (32-7), who have the NBA’s best record, the league’s best home record at 21-1 and a 3½-game lead in the Eastern Conference over two-time defending champion Miami.
George’s highlight-reel dunks and Lance Stephenson’s increasingly commonplace poses are all becoming part of Indiana’s normal routine.
George, last year’s Most Improved Player, has six 30-point games and 27 20-point games this season. The 23-year-old emerging star is ranked among the league leaders in scoring, free throw percentage and steals, and he might be higher in rebounds and assists if the Pacers weren’t blowing teams out with regularity.
