Paul George of the Oklahoma City Thunder is logging in career-highs in four major statistical categories. As observed by Redditor goochbruise, Paul George is averaging career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, and steals.

Specifically, he’s putting up 24.1 points, 7.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists, and 2.5 steals through the first 15 games of the season. So there’s a possibility that Paul George’s stats will dip and normalize as they play more games — or maybe not.

Paul George’s output has helped guide the Thunder to a decent 10-5 record, and are currently riding a three-game winning streak. In this streak, George has scored at least 30 points and is a perfect, 19-of-19 from the free throw line.

A good part of the spike in Paul George’s numbers is due to his ability to grab the rebound and immediately bring it down the floor — a task given to Russell Westbrook when he’s in the lineup. He’s been out for six games due to an ankle injury and the birth of his twin daughters.

Thunder head coach Billy Donovan commended Paul George for this, noting that his size, length, and vision allows him to make plays for his teammates. Per Erik Horne of The Oklahoman via Tulsa World:

“It’s huge, because it allows everybody else to run and it’s a little bit different when your point guard’s not necessarily bringing the ball up the floor,” Donovan said. “All of the sudden, (George) has gotten matched up against the other team’s point guards.

“Plus, I think, with all of his size and his length and his vision, he can see over the top of the defense and he can make plays and create offense for other guys.”

Paul George is having a career year and the Thunder have weathered the absence of its MVP in Westbrook.
