People lie, but numbers don't. This holds true for Keyonte George, who is making a name for himself in the NBA. The Utah Jazz point guard is among the elite rookies of this year's class, and his numbers are proving it. He's even making a case for Rookie of the Year as a sleeper this season.

Keyonte George isn't just making waves; he's creating a tsunami in the rookie landscape of the NBA this season. His scoring prowess places him in elite company, tied for second in most 30-point games among rookies, just trailing Victor Wembanyama. Additionally, he's among the top rookies in games with 25 points, tied with Chet Holmgren and Brandon Miller.

But George isn't just about scoring; he's a maestro on the court, leading all rookies in games with six or more assists, leaving competitors like Scoot Henderson in his wake. Even in games with five or more assists, George reigns supreme, outpacing his closest rival, Brandin Podziemski.

Over his last 20 games, George has been a statistical dynamo, averaging 15.7 points, 4.7 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game, while shooting an impressive 41.5% from beyond the arc. Since February 1st, his efficiency has skyrocketed, boasting an 80.6 effective field goal percentage on catch-and-shoot attempts and a remarkable 44.4% from three-point range.


With his youth on his side, having just turned 20 in November, the future looks incredibly bright for George. He's not only giving Jazz fans reason to cheer but also setting the stage for an electrifying remainder of the regular season in Utah.
