Paul George's Hot Streak Has the Thunder Looking Like a Legit Threat to the Warriors

It’s not easy making Russell Westbrook anything other than the main story in Oklahoma City, especially on a night when he sets another triple-double record. But Paul George’s recent tear is nothing short of spectacular. The Thunder’s imported star notched a triple double of his own in Oklahoma City’s 120-111 win on Monday night, erupting for 47 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. George is averaging 36 points per game since Jan. 19. The Thunder are 11–1 in that span. The former Pacers star continues to be OKC’s headliner even as Westbrook continues to rack up the triple doubles.
