This is probably the most common issue that a lot of developing players experience.
Make no mistake, George is a great outside shooter and has the length to shoot over anybody defending him.
But anyone as athletic and mobile as George should take advantage of his mismatches much more frequently. He is reportedly 6'8" but primarily plays the 2 or the 3. That means he has a match-up advantage against almost every opposing defender, because hardly anybody is as big as George at those positions.
In the Pacers' most recent loss against the Boston Celtics, George shot 7-for-22 from the field. Twelve of his attempts came from the mid-range area or beyond the three-point line, and he only connected on three of them.
However, he shot 4-for-10 in the painted area and around the rim, and George certainly has the ability to consistently create higher percentage shots for himself.
For the season, he's shooting a respectable 38 percent from three-point land, but he's taking nearly six of them per game. If he can lessen those attempts and create more shots closer to the rim, George would take a big step forward.
