Paul George completes four-point play to send game against Kings into overtime (VIDEO)

Jan 25, 2014, 12:30 PM EST

The Pacers have been one of the league’s best teams through the first half of the season, but were coming off of a 24-point loss in Phoenix, and were in danger of losing in Sacramento to a Kings team playing without both Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins due to injury.

Paul George made sure that wouldn’t happen, completing an improbable four-point play with under 16 seconds remaining that tied the game and sent it into overtime, where George scored eight of his team’s 13 points in the extra session to ensure a Pacers victory.

It’s tough to tell exactly what the referees saw when making this call from the angles we get, but especially on that last one it doesn’t appear as though George got hit on the arm; in fact, if he had, it’s doubtful the off-balance three from that distance would have splashed home the way it did.

There might have been a small push by the defender as George came around the screen, but that was extremely minor, and obviously it was a very tough call for the Kings to swallow.

The referees have been on the wrong side of these late-game calls seemingly all season long. Twice they’ve tried to stay out of it and let some contact go with games on the line, only to be publicly reprimanded by the league office the very next day. That’s why we’re seeing the itchy trigger-finger from the officials on these plays in the final seconds; hopefully there will be a balance found here over the second half of the season.

    There is no foul on that play. But at least George actually tried to make the shot this time instead of flopping for a whistle like he normally does.

      haha look how cute he is, indirectly defending lebron. hehe

      • antistratfordian - Jan 25, 2014 at 3:29 PM

        That isn’t indirect. It’s pretty obvious. I expected George to try to flop on this play like he did the previous 3 times he tried to do this. This time though it appears he was just trying to sink the three – good for him.

        hahahaha i KNEW IT
        thanks for admitting. i knew i could read your feeble little mind. you’re such a simpleton

      • antistratfordian - Jan 27, 2014 at 3:29 PM

        You shouldn’t be so proud of yourself. What else would anybody think I’m referring to here if not that?

        Though I do understand why you’d be elated at thinking you can get inside of my head. That would be a special moment for anybody.

        im a man. i wouldn’t want to get in your head. stop hitting on me. you strange alien.

        0/10

        i didn’t want to know your success rate at the male strip club.

      • antistratfordian - Jan 28, 2014 at 3:17 PM

        You got me. My success rate is much higher at female strip clubs. No man can compete with your 10/10 rate at Chippendales.

      • money2long - Jan 30, 2014 at 9:19 AM

        haha ! u let the world know you ACTUALLY have attempts at male strip clubs. lollll and even they cant stand you !!!

      • antistratfordian - Jan 30, 2014 at 7:24 PM

        Yes, the world is absolutely convinced of this because of our banter here. 9_9

        zzzZZZzzz

      • money2long - Jan 30, 2014 at 9:24 PM

        no, not because of the banter, because you said it explicitly ! you admitted it ! stop backing down now ! like how you back it down at the male strip club! we all see how you get down on the weekends !

        we don’t judge your orientation here. only your basketball “knowledge” …

      • antistratfordian - Jan 30, 2014 at 11:08 PM

        Dude… people don’t care. Relax. You and I are the only people who even remotely care about these specific messages and with me I do mean remote. Holster those exclamation points and get a hold of yourself.

      • money2long - Jan 30, 2014 at 11:56 PM

        so,you just revealed a huge piece of your psyche to me….it’s quite telling.

        you’re ;utting huge stock in “people’s view” in regards to what we’re discussing. so that truly means you say things for the attention of others. what other people think weigh into how you move through life. kinda sad. nice response. NOT. you’re living a very troubled life. all you have to say now is, this means nothing because ‘other people can’t see it” …. ? so pitiful. that tells me a lot more as to why you like to bash lakers and kobe fans and kobe himself. you enjoy when you feel you know ‘other people’ will see it, even if it isn’t directed to them. you’re probably one of those people who will try to do too much if you know you have an ‘audience’ . your reply has taught me so much about your mentality. you’re a bonafide attention seeker. you need eyes on you for anything you do to matter or have significance. you’re a loser.

      • antistratfordian - Jan 31, 2014 at 4:27 PM

        Far too much typing for this way-past-meaningless issue. I know talking to me gets you excited but you have to find a way to calm yourself and move on.

      • money2long - Jan 31, 2014 at 7:38 PM

        hahahhahahahahhahaa im soooo deep under your skin !!!

        but don’t get any ideas, wouldnt wanna turn you on !!!

        bwahaha

      • spthegr8 - Jan 25, 2014 at 4:24 PM

        It’s only Obvious cuz of who we are talkin about. 9 times outta 10, your either defending LeBron or hating on Kobe. I guess it’s a flip of the coin for you. Your either here to Suck or BL…..!!

    The first sentence should read “The Pacers have been THE best team…”

    but anyways for anyone complaining that there was no foul here (and I agree lol) us Pacers fans don’t wanna hear it!

    We are the victim of the WORST 4 point play non fouls in league history. YouTube Larry Johnson 4 pt play from the 99 ECF.

    having said that, Pacers definitely got lucky but sometimes that happens in sports

    • kingtotz - Jan 26, 2014 at 12:11 AM

      i remember that game.. lol

    W O W that was bad.

    I hope Paul George doesn’t actually feel good about this.
