George scored 26 points in Game 1, but did so on 8-of-24 shooting and went 4-of-15 from three-point range. His injury sounded pretty severe recently, but he denied that it was the issue behind his lackluster performance. That will be met with skepticism, but if George looks sharper in Game 2, the questions should evaporate fairly quickly.
