Pacers’ Paul George Stumbles Mightily
The Miami Heat’s Big 3 smiled, satisfied if not smug, as they watched their teammates ice a 114-96 win.
Across the scorer’s table, Paul George tried his best to hide, pulling his warmup T-shirt up to cover half his face and erase what had happened. He’d just finished his night with 13 points on 3-for-10 shooting. His five turnovers equaled the Heat’s team total. After two days of being hailed as one of the league’s newest superstars — someone up to the task of facing LeBron James — George had struggled.
Nothing came easy for George on either end of the court; James had his way in one-on-one matchups with his younger counterpart.
