The Utah Jazz have seen their rookie guard take some needed steps over the last two months. A streaky player since coming into the league this past summer, the Jazz's rookie point guard may have found his niche on the team. After spending most of the season struggling to find his shot and showing off poor shot selection, the last six weeks have really shown what George can be.

A sub-40% shooter for most of the season, George's percentage from the floor has improved. He's now over 40% from the floor for the season, (40.3%) and is climbing up the three-point percentage charts too, hitting just under 36%. As he's taking 5.6 three-point attempts, that's not a bad number.

His yearly averages are fine, not all that impressive (12.8 points, 4.5 assists, 2.8 rebounds per game), but those figures and his shooting splits since February are wild.

In February, he had a shooting split of 43% from the floor, 42% from three-point, and a free-throw average of 85.7%. In March, those splits rose a bit, going to 47.2% from the floor, 40.8% from three, and 85.7% from the free throw line again. While his three-point stat line did dip, anything over 40% is the goal.

What's even more impressive is that in January he averaged 11.1 points per game, while in February that number rose to 14.9 points. In March, he's keeping steady at 20.6 points per game. Some of that has been powered by the fact that guys like Lauri Markkanen and Jordan Clarkson keep missing games, but still, consistency is the important part, not the actual points scored. George isn't the number one option, so it's ok if he's not scoring as much as other players, just as long as his consistency is there.

Defensively, he still has a lot to work on, he's quite bad on that end of the court, and he's been wildly inconsistent as a passer. Those are things that need to be worked on, as he enters his second year on the Jazz.
