Paul George used to get a hard time for not hitting late-game winners. Well, in the past two years he’s now hit FOUR go-ahead three-pointers in the final 30 seconds of a 4th quarter or overtime. That’s twice as many as anyone else in the NBA in that stretch.
Will be interesting to hear noted challenge hater Doc Rivers' thoughts after his successful challenge prevented Danilo Gallinari from going to the foul line with a chance to give the Thunder the lead in the final 10 seconds of what ended up a Clippers win.
Third, 3) The Towns Factor.....,, Who guards him? He's really a stretch 4. Will Gobert defend him? Will Jazz adjust? Towns avgd 27-11-5 last year vs Jazz. Also, in his last 4 games, he's averaging 29.0, 60%fg, and has made 14 of L 28 threes!
