Paul George thinks something is wrong with his shot

"Gotta figure out if it's something mechanical in my shot", said George, per Norman Transcript's Fred Katz.

The reigning MVP went from shooting a career-best 84.5 percent from the foul line to regressing immensely, making only 73.7 percent of his attempts at the charity stripe - 4.3 percent less than his worst season at 78 percent in 2009-10. After the game, George admitted there's something wrong with his shot adding it "feels amusing". "It feels funny-shooting the ball feels amusing".

Despite trailing the Thunder at the end of the first quarter, Golden State, playing without Stephen Curry, turned things around and won the game 111-107, tying the season series in the process. While he is still connecting on almost 40 percent of his threes on the year, the five-time All-Star has seen his shooting splits sink to 37.8 percent from the field and 28.6 percent from deep since the All-Star break.

He hasn't shot 50 percent in a game since February 14.

There was a lot of energy on both offense and defense, shots were being contested, pick and roll plays were on, and there was tremendous hustle from all the players on the court.

Paul George's shooting has noticably dropped off the past month, and it hasn't helped Oklahoma City, which has lost five of its last seven games.

The squad is sixth in the Western Conference with a 45-34 record but is just 1.5 games clear of being out of the playoffs.
