This cross conference matchup includes two of the best players from this past Sunday’s all-star game.
The Indiana Pacers are looking to start off hot in the second half of the year being led by Paul George who had a fabulous all-star game.
The Oklahoma City Thunder look to improve their record to gain ground on the Spurs and Warriors, lead be the all-star MVP Russell Westbrook.
The Indiana Pacers are being led completely by Paul George after missing most of last season with his injury. The Pacers went into the break 3-2 in their last five games, averaging 101.2 and giving up 102 points per game during that span.

He is being paced by newly acquired guard Monte Ellis who is averaging 13.9 points and just under 4.8 assists a game.
