George Hill Lights Up ABA Exhibition With Texas Fuel

Indiana Pacers guard George Hill (still sounds cool doesn't it?) played in an ABA exhibition game in Brownsville, Texas on Saturday night, helping lead the Texas Fuel to a 119-93 win over the West Texas Whirlwinds.

G3 finished the games with 39 points, eight assists and two steals not giving the ABA players a chance to show up the NBA player in the game. Michael A. De Leon from Project Spurs was on hand and had this to say about Hill's impact on the game.

Hill was very active on defense, sitting in passing lanes, picking off passes and leading the fast break in transition. Shortly after moving from shooting guard to point guard, the Whirlwind held a 14-13 lead, but that's as close as it would get.

On the ensuing play, Hill ran the break, finishing with a dunk and then crossed his defender on an isolation play for a fadeaway and the foul.

At the end of the first quarter, Hill had 14 points, and he wouldn't be riding the pine for the remainder of the game like most would expect. He played heavy minutes and scored at ease, either squaring up for a jumper or slicing through the lane for a layup.
