George is one of the biggest reasons the Pacers are sitting at 13-1, the best record in the NBA. Through the first 14 games, George is averaging 24 points (5th in the NBA), 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals per game. He's helping the Pacers in a variety of ways, and it's showing up in the standings.

Last night, George made a huge play against the Minnesota Timberwolves, helping the Pacers take a 3-point lead late in the 3rd quarter of a game that eventually finished with the Pacers winning 98-84.

Hill finished with 26 points in that game and a plus-minus of +14.

Although it would almost be crazy to consider anyone but LeBron James for the MVP award, George is definitely making a strong case early in the season to get some serious consideration.

Check out this steal by George, which he turns into a sick windmill dunk against the Wolves:
