Paul George has big goals in mindPosted by Inside Hoops
Indiana’s Paul George is already thinking big.
He wants that breakout regular season to become the norm and hopes Sunday’s triple-double is just the start of a far more tangible prize.
This is how George rolls - never satisfied with past performances, always intent on proving the doubters wrong - and it will be no different when the Pacers line up for Game 2 against Atlanta on Wednesday night. George’s mission: Proving he can be even better.
”I don’t want people to think it’s a one game type of thing,” he after Monday’s practice. ”I want to do outdo myself from Game 1.”
That won’t be easy after George finished with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists, tied Reggie Miller’s playoff record by going 17 of 17 from the free-throw line before missing his final attempt, joined Mark Jackson as the only players in the franchise’s NBA history to produce a triple-double in the playoffs, and was every bit as efficient on defense.
