It’s so difficult to assess George Hill’s time with Cleveland, considering he usually left his act at The Q. Hill performed really well for the Cavs during home games but seemed to disappear when the team went on the road to play away games.
Hill averaged 9.4 points per game in the regular season and kept that number steady during the playoffs at 9.2 points per contest. But his road split during the postseason was at 8.1 points per game, nothing too marvelous from the veteran.
It really never seemed like Hill adapted to life alongside LeBron James and it showed at points in time. Hill was stuck behind the eight-ball early on in his Cavaliers’ run due to learning how to play point guard without having the ball in his hands for most of the offensive possessions.
When your starting point guard struggles to score consistently, it’s tough to win or create matchups for success. Hill proved that this year.
