George produced 31 points (9-18 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 9-9 FT), four rebounds, four assists and a steal across 31 minutes in Monday's 127-109 win over the Knicks.
George sank the first 3-pointer of the night, and the Thunder never trailed after that. He's having a red-hot January, averaging 27.9 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.6 steals over the first nine games of the month. George is regularly producing equal, and sometimes better, numbers than teammate Russell Westbrook.
George supplied 31 points (8-20 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 11-11 FT), six rebounds, five assists and three steals across 40 minutes Saturday in the Thunder's 117-115 win over the 76ers.
While George failed to hit at least half his shots for the eighth game in a row to drop his field-goal percentage to an ugly 39.6 percent over that span, he provided the game's biggest bucket with a go-ahead four-point play with just over five seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. In just about every other area except for field-goal percentage and blocks, George is offering above-average-to-elite production. The forward is averaging career-best marks in points (26.7), rebounds (8.0), steals (2.3) and three-pointers (3.4) per game and has been a better overall fantasy contributor than teammate and former MVP Russell Westbrook, whose ugly shooting from the field, free-throw line and distance has limited the impact of his NBA-best 13 triple-doubles.
George registered 27 points (9-19 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 4-6 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds, and three steals in 44 minutes during Thursday's 138-128 overtime loss to the Lakers.
George came fairly close to delivering a triple double, matching his season high assist total while contributing in every category except blocks. He has canned five treys in consecutive contests, as well as in four of the last seven games. George will look to keep it rolling during Saturday's matchup with the 76ers.
George finished with 24 points (6-18 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 7-7 3Pt), eight rebounds, five steals and three assists in 36 minutes Tuesday against Atlanta.
Although George has struggled shooting over his past five games -- going 38-of-102 over that stretch -- he's still been able to produce quality lines primarily because his three-point shooting hasn't dropped off significantly. George is one of the foremost fantasy players as he provides elite production across the board and has few deficiencies beyond a sometime streaky shot.
George totaled 30 points (11-25 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-7 FT), eight rebounds, three steals, and one assist in 47 minutes during Thursday's 154-147 double overtime loss to the Spurs.
George wasn't as efficient as usual, needing 25 field-goal attempts to score his 30 points while finishing with more turnovers (two) than dimes. With that being said, he's turning in career-high averages in scoring, rebounding, steals, and threes this season while building a strong case for MVP consideration.
