The Oklahoma City Thunder were down 18 points entering the fourth quarter. However, Paul George put the team on his back and carried them to an improbable victory.
High expectations were set on George coming into this season, especially after signing a massive extension worth $137 million. Well, the All-Star forward certainly delivered tonight.
With the game on the line, the sharp-shooting superstar drilled the go-ahead three-point shot to take the lead with just seconds remaining.
In one the best showings of his career, George dropped 47 points on the Nets.

What makes this effort so special is that 25 points came in the fourth quarter. This performance on the hardwood hasn’t been matched by any member of the Thunder, since the franchise was relocated to Oklahoma City.
Paul George has 25 points in the 4th quarter, most by any Thunder player in ANY quarter since the franchise moved to OKC in 2008-09.

Billy Donovan is leading this team to new heights, as the Thunder are 16-7 on the season, which has them looking down on the rest of the Western Conference.
If George continues playing at an elite level, it’ll be tough to stop Oklahoma City.
