Paul George reflects on his time in Indiana, says it’s time for all to move on

The game was over but there was a crowd of people in the tunnel. They weren’t waiting for an autograph or to slap hands with a player. A pack of more than a dozen media members had gathered outside the Oklahoma City Thunder’s locker room less than five minutes since the conclusion of the game,…

Running thoughts: Thunder 100, Pacers 95

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 100-95 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 114-96 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Classy move by the Thunder to recognize Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis on the video board before the game. It took George 2:22 seconds to complain to the officials. He was called for a foul,…
