The Pacers claimed a 4-3 first-round win last night to progress to the semi-finals, with George scoring a post-season, career-high 30 points, while also adding 11 rebounds.
"Paul George really carried us for a lot of the game on the offensive end," Vogel revealed after the match.
"He's a gamer. The bigger the stakes, the better he's going to play."
The Pacers will now face the Washington Wizards in the next round on Monday.
