The Pacers lost their first home game in over two months against Toronto Friday. While the 100-98 decision ended a 15-game homecourt winning streak, it has not dampened the enthusiasm inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Indiana is still the top team in the Central Division and would be the #3 seed in the Eastern Conference if the NBA Playoffs started today.
The Pacers will also be well-represented in Houston this weekend for the All-Star festivities. Paul George is a reserve for the Eastern Conference All-Stars. He will also compete in the three-point shootout Saturday, one year after participating in the Slam Dunk Contest. Pacers reserve Gerald Green will give George a little company in Houston this weekend as he is in the Sprite Slam Dunk contest.
Following the Pacers practice Sunday afternoon at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Fox 59 talked with Paul George about his big weekend and the Pacers season up to this point.
George and Green were among the last players on the practice court Sunday, they spent some time shooting half-court shots and also could be seen talking about a little slam-dunk strategy with Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw.
Green spent some time talking with Fox 59 about his plans for the weekend visit to his hometown of Houston.
