George helps Pacers set 3-point mark in blowout win

WASHINGTON — Pacers forward Paul George thinks his team doesn't get enough attention.

With more nights like Tuesday, they will.

George scored a season-high 40 and made seven 3-pointers, part of a franchise-record 19 by Indiana in a 123-106 victory over the Wizards.

C.J. Miles added 32 points, his most since joining the Pacers before the start of last season, as Indiana won for the ninth time in 11 games following an 0-3 start.

"We always get overlooked," George said. "We're still getting used to the system, but now we're flowing."

Miles made 8 of 9 3-pointers and George also missed only once from deep as the Pacers tied their season scoring high set Saturday against the Bucks.

Indiana finished 73.1 percent (19-of-26) from 3-point range, crushing their previous season high of 44.4 percent (12-of-27).

"First time I've seen something like that," said George, smiling and shaking his head.

Said frustrated Wizards guard Bradley Beal: "When I'm standing this close to you and you're still making shots, I mean, what else do you want us to do?"

Gary Neal scored 23 points off the bench for the Wizards, whose three-game winning streak was snapped.

Beal added 20 points and John Wall 18 for Washington, which has lost five of its six games when it allows more than 110 points.

"We have to let this one go," Wizards coach Randy Wittman said.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Mike Conley scored 21, Jeff Green added 19 and seven players reached double figures for the host Grizzlies in a 110-96 victory over the Mavericks, Memphis' fifth in six games. … Paul Millsap scored 25, Jeff Teague added 16 and the host Hawks beat the Celtics 121-97. Atlanta had lost four of five.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: The Hawks retired Dikembe Mutombo's No. 55 jersey to honor the longtime shot blocker's Hall of Fame enshrinement. Mutombo signed as a free agent in 1996 to make Atlanta the second stop on an 18-year career he spent with five other teams. … Spurs star Tony Parker had a walk on the wild side this week and named three African lion cubs at the San Antonio Zoo after his wife, their son and himself. Zoo officials said Parker decided on Axelle, Josh and T.P. after making the top bid for the naming rights.
