Paul George played point guard in the U.S. Olympic team’s 106-57 victory over the Chinese Olympic team Sunday, displaying the sort of length, athleticism and versatility the team will take to Rio for the Olympic Games. Unlike Friday’s opening exhibition victory over Argentina, George started in the game before a sellout crowd at Staples Center in Los Angeles. He wasn’t a factor offensively, as he had been then with 18 points, but made his presence known as...
