We finally made it. The moment NBA fans have been waiting for all season.
Okay, maybe it’s not that dramatic…but fans in Indiana at least have had this game circled on their calendars.
It’s the return of Paul George.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder haven’t figured out yet how to be a superteam. They did pull together four wins in five outings recently, but they’re entering this contest coming off a 116-103 loss to the Charlotte Hornets.
So far this season, OKC is averaging 101.8 points per game. That number is only good enough for 28th in the NBA.
Their struggles on that end have come largely from their issues shooting from the perimeter, so they’ll need to hit shots from deep to come away with the win as underdogs.
Defensively, OKC is allowing opponents to score 99.6 points per night. That number is good enough for third in the league.
Indy star guard Victor Oladipo is having a career year. This game is just as important to him as it is to Paul George, as it’s his chance to exact revenge against the Thunder team that traded him.
So far this season, Indiana is averaging 109 points per contest. That number is good enough for sixth in the league.
Defensively, the Pacers are allowing opponents to score 107.5 points per night. That number puts them at 22nd in the NBA.
Entering this contest, the Pacers are coming off a 126-116 victory over the Denver Nuggets. That was their fourth win in a row, including victories over the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
The Pacers are 1.5-point favorites in this one, and it’s easy to see why. Although you can expect a solid return performance from Paul George, Indy has been the far more consistent and reliable team when looking at them alongside the Thunder.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Indiana -1.5
Assuming the Thunder get good performances from both Paul George and Russell Westbrook, there’s no reason to believe this will be a blowout in favor of the Pacers.
That said, Oladipo could very well put together one of his best performances of the season against his old team, and if he does, it’ll spell trouble for Oklahoma City.
