Paul George has played in do-or-die big games in the NBA playoffs, including the Eastern Conference Finals. Game 7 contests that leave the loser devastated and done.
Unfortunately, PG has been on the disappointing end of those NBA battles, but today in Rio he has a chance to win the big one in Rio with Team USA and bring home a gold medal.
Team USA tips off against Serbia at 2:45 p.m.e ET on NBC and live streamed on NBCOlympics.com.
Serbia nearly took down the Americans in pool play but the USA squad held on for a 94-91 win after a couple of late threes for Serbia bounced.
Hopefully, we can enjoy a Pacers pre-game ceremony celebrating PG’s gold medal along with Tamika Catchings who earned another gold with Team USA on Saturday.
But first PG has to help his team win the big one, which would be a great experience to bring back to the Pacers along with the gold.
