Last night, the world was able to witness an outstanding performance from NBA All Star Paul George. He was able to lead his Thunder squad to a 116-108 over an feisty, Utah Jazz squad whose rookie sensation had a playoff performance debut of an lifetime. But it wad PG13 who stole the show in which it was only right George dubbed himself an new nickname of this year's NBA playoffs. After a thunderous 36 point performance, ladies and gents, I will like to welcomely introduce to you the birth of Paul George 2.0 aka “Playoff P”.
Believe it or not, it's been roughly four years since the world was shocked by the devastating injury he suffered getting ready for the FIBA World Basketball Cup with team USA. The hoops world thought that George's career was over and that will never reach his potential MVP caliber like play which made him one of the leading faces of the league. Last night, you was able to see glimpse of why PG13 still got it and will still light it up in a heart beat. From making defenders fall, talking trash to Joe Ingles and just basically lighting it up all over Chesapeake Energy Arena, #13's display of overall dominance was a simple reminder to fans worldwide that the hooper still got it and he's ready to make some major noise throughout this year's playoffs.
With drawing first blood on their defenders, all eyes will be on an resurgent Jazz squad who will come up with a new gameplan to focus on another dominating weapon other than Russell Westbrook. Even though Donovan Mitchell's 20 and 10's performance wasn't enough to secure a victory. But it was an eye opener to all OKC fans to be worried about as the potential Rookie Of The Year favorite is on the prowl to become not only the Jazz's new franchise face, but to be amongst the league's most elite. Game 2 should be a doozie of a matchup as Playoff P is ready to steal the prominent letter P letter from another superstar who is in the playoffs suiting up for the reigning NBA World Champs. “Swaggy P,” you got company as Playoff P is on your heel and is ready to be the Most Valuable “P” of all hoopers in the league.
