The Cougar NBA tracker: Jimmer Fredette, game 36

Behind a strong effort from Paul George, The Pacers beat the Sacramento Kings 116-92 on Tuesday night.

George finished the contest with 31 points on 10-of-18 shooting from the floor and 4-of-7 from 3-point range.  Indiana also got a solid effort from David West who ended up with 16 points and eight rebounds.

The Kings were led by DeMarcus Cousins who tallied 31 points, 13 rebounds and two steals.  The only other Sacramento player in double figures on the night was Rudy Gay who scored 12 points to go along with three steals.

Jimmer played 20:49 in the loss and registered nine points on 4-of-10 shooting to go along with four rebounds, a team high four assists and a steal.  His rebound and assist totals were both a season high. The 20:49 of playing time marks the first time all season that Fredette has played at least 20 minutes in a game.

Jimmer has been playing well as of late with five of his most productive games of the season over the last seven outings.  The Kings are back at it tomorrow night when they travel to Minnesota to take on Kevin Love and the Timberwolves.
