Paul George Wins NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week

+Read full article

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Indiana Pacers starting shooting guard Paul George was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week, for a stellar sample-size of top-notch performances. The honor is a career first for George, who helped lead the Pacers to a 3-o record last week, while he averaged 23.3 points, seven rebounds, and four assists.

Being named Player of the Week for the first time is big for George and for the Pacers as a whole. The Pacers have been looking for one of their young stars to step up and take the lead this season, especially with the loss of team captain Danny Granger. Up until last week, George had been hot and cold so far this season. Last month, in a comeback win against the New Orleans Hornets, George hit a Indiana-record nine three-point shots. On the first day of this month, George was held scoreless in an away loss against the Golden State Warriors.

The sky is truly the limit for George, who is starting to show his true potential in his third season as a pro. The key is consistency, which has been an issue for this team so far this season. Not only has George seemed to step up his production on both ends of the court, he is beginning to become more aggressive and confident with his shot selection. If George keeps up this type of play, Granger may be able to take his time in gradually coming back to the court, and let the young man rumble.
