There are few people in the NBA that cause issues for Indiana Pacers star Paul George but recently after a loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, he decided to single out one player.
Check out this quote from the Pacers team blog about George giving credit to Kevin Durant for being the toughest cover in the NBA today:
“It is,” he said. “It is a tougher matchup. I watch their games, I watch a lot of NBA games. And offensively, KD is most of the times he’s scoring in bunches off of iso plays and one-on-one plays.
“And when they play against us, he’s moving a lot. He’s the screener, he’s getting back-screened and he’s coming off pin-downs and it’s a little different when I’m guarding him and it makes it a tougher cover.”
I think few will argue with George on that….
