Paul George has been stacking up phenomenal numbers. He is fourth on the scoring highest scorer in the league, averaging 27 points alongside 8 rebounds 5 assists, and 2.7 blocks. The supporting cast around PG13 has been doing a phenomenal job as well. Jackson, Kennard, Mann, and Batum are all averaging 10+ points. Though the lack of Kawhi Leonard has been felt throughout most of their games. They have lost four of their nine games so far this season, but they are currently on a four-game winning streak.
The Blazers have been struggling offensively. Damian Lillard’s numbers have dropped drastically, to 18 points this season with 24% shooting from behind the three-point line. CJ McCollum has managed to put up decent numbers averaging 22 points. But both Lillard and McCollum’s numbers combined are not good enough to steer their team forward.
