Alert:

Will Paul George Make Indiana Return in Thunder-Pacers Game?

Pacers Basketball

 

Paul George was the star attraction at the Fieldhouse for five years. He returns Wednesday night for the first time as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder.  The question will be, will George suit up against his former team? He missed the past two games with a right calf contusion and is considered day-to-day.

Oddsmakers have the game set as a Pickem’ and the total is at 214.5. The game will be televised at 7 pm EST as the early game on ESPN.

So far it looks like the Pacers have “won” the offseason trade that sent George to Oklahoma City. OKC received George in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. It was the Thunder beating Indiana 114-96 as 13-point favorites when they met October 25 in OKC.

Sabonis started at center and shot 1-for-9 from the field. He’s been moved into a reserve role at power forward. The Pacers are 10-5 SU and ATS with Sabonis at the 4-spot.

The Thunder have had disappointing results so far this year. With George and Carmelo Anthony alongside reigning league MVP Russell Westbrook the team was supposed to flourish. Neither addition is playing like an All-Star, especially Anthony.

The wheels may be coming off as well. Oklahoma City has dropped the cash in eight straight games. They have went 4-4 SU as medium favorites on the NBA lines.
