Paul George hit a game-winner…again. This time in double overtime over the Utah Jazz.

After an embarrassing first-round exit the year prior, the Thunder and Jazz budded a great rivalry on the court and off between the fanbases.

On February 22nd, the Thunder and Jazz played an instant classic. the game went into double overtime, with 10 seconds left. Oklahoma City trailed 147-146 with ten seconds remaining.

As Paul George raced down the floor, he was met at the top of the key by Joe Ingles. A man who shut him down in last year’s postseason. George put Ingles on skates dribbling right past him and into the arms of Rudy Gobert, the soon to be back-to-back Defensive Player of the Year.

Before George was met at the rim by the Jazz defensive anchor, he lofted a floater off one leg with 2.7 seconds left.

PG put so much arc on the ball, not only due to the incoming pressure from Gobert but so high that by the time the ball hit the bottom of the net the clock was at 0.9 seconds, barely enough time for Utah to counter.

Those were just two of Paul George jaw dropping 45 points to lift the Thunder to a 148-147 win over the Jazz.
