You were good, Paul George. Just not quite good enough.
As George raced to the 3-point line to close out on LeBron James, who was receiving an inbounds pass with two seconds on the clock, there was an overwhelming sense that viewers had seen this situation before.

2- Paul George overplaying LeBron on the catch.
