George Hill tied his career-high with 11 assists in the 106-102 loss to Portland.

After a slow start to the season, Hill has turned it up a notch, some, over his last five games as he is averaging 12.6 points, 4.6 boards, 6.2 assists, and 2.2 steals in that span. Hill still continues to struggle with his shot as he is shooting just 36.5% over his last five games and 40% on the season, but if he can keep dishing out dimes at the higher rate and getting steals it will make it easier to fade the poor shooting percentage going forward.
