George posted 19 points (7-19 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, five steals and one block across 35 minutes in Tuesday's 96-86 preseason win over the Nuggets.
The only blemish on an otherwise stellar stat line was George's unsightly 36.8 percent success rate from the field, which included a 20.0 percent tally from two-point range. However, he was outstanding in all other aspects and closes out the exhibition slate having scored no less than 15 points in any contest and draining multiple threes in the last three games. George has been aggressive with the ball in his hands as well, taking at least 13 shot attempts in each of the four games and visiting the charity stripe on a combined 19 occasions between the second and third exhibition. He'll look to carry over his success into the regular-season opener versus the Knicks on Oct. 19.
George posted 22 points (5-17 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 9-9 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one block across 39 minutes during an 86-85 win over the Melbourne United on Sunday.
George received by far the most minutes of any player on the team in the narrow victory. He was cold from the field, and picked up nearly half of his points from the foul line. Last season with the Indiana Pacers, George averaged 23.7 points and 6.6 rebounds per game. So far, through three preseason games with the Thunder, George is averaging 20.7 points and 5.3 boards per game. His numbers will likely jump a bit during regular season, which would leave him near his averages from last season.
Holiday posted 11 points (4-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt), six assists and a rebound scross 25 minutes in Friday's 102-91 preseason loss to the Thunder.
Thunder fans are rejoicing at the organization's offseason moves, with George and Carmelo Anthony impressing in early preseason action. While the first preseason game was a showcase for Anthony, Friday's matchup was all George, as he dominated the court while he was on the floor. The Chesapeake Energy Arena is now plugged in at full power with the addition of George and Anthony. Pair them with 2016 MVP Russell Westbrook, and you've got a team that will contend for the championship. George's presence in Oklahoma City should move him up in most drafts to the second round, or possibly higher depending on the format.
George tallied 15 points (6-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 26 minutes during Tuesday's 104-97 loss to the Rockets.
George wasted no time getting comfortable in his new digs Tuesday, stuffing the stat sheet during his OKC debut. That said, we'll have to wait and see what his role is once Russell Westbrook (knee) returns from injury and assumes his role as the leader of the offense.
George has been the hottest name in the league since he informed the Pacers he did not intend to re-sign with the them following the 2017-18 season. The Thunder were not really being talked about as a possible landing spot for the star forward, which makes this move all the more surprising. The Thunder traded Serge Ibaka for Oladipo and a lottery-pick that ended up being Sabonis prior to free agency last season, as they did not intend to offer him the max. They have now flipped those two assets for presumably just one year of George, as he reportedly will favor his hometown Lakers heading into 2018 free agency. The rental risk makes sense, as Russell Westbrook is in his prime and coming off a career season where he was not provided much help on the team around him. George and Westbrook should mesh well on the court in theory, as George is not a ball-dominant player. It remains to be seen how the team will fill the roster around those two star players, but George should be primed for a big season in Oklahoma City.
