Westbrook was pulled up by the match officials for his altercation with the fans and he addressed the situation after the game and revealed that the exchange got heated due to a racial comment made by one of the home supporters.

Oklahoma City Thunder superstar small forward Paul George made his second return to IN on Thursday to face the Pacers.

Utah Jazz owner Gail Miller had a message for fans in the crowd ahead of the team's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday night. Sabonis tied it back up with another layup with 57 seconds left. A minute earlier George had scored 5 straight points to give OKC the lead back.

It was a different story in the final minute.

The Indiana Pacers could use a win here after splitting their last 12 games. And that was where Matthews pounced on a weakside rebound to tip-in a Bojan Bogdanovic miss.

According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook, the Pacers are 1-point favorites to beat the Thunder.

Pacers Injuries: Tyreke Evans: day to day (personal), Victor Oladipo: out for season (ruptured right quadricep tendon).

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George has been playing MVP-caliber basketball this season, asserting himself into the conversation alongside the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden in the race for the NBA's top individual honor. The Indiana Pacers have won six of their last eight home games. Back in the summer of 2017, Paul George left the Pacers no choice.

With Victor Oladipo out, this isn't an overly talented IN team. In return for George, the Pacers got a new star (Oladipo) and a blossoming young big man (Sabonis).

Will came away very impressed with Morant's court vision, saying the 20 year old point guard has a unique ability to spot open teammates and deliver the ball in a manner that allows them to get a shot off easily. Acquiring George led to Russell Westbrook to sign a long-term deal--which was unquestionably the most important aspect of the trade for OKC--and then they were able to convince George to re-sign as well.

Without All-Star guard Victor Oladipo, who the underdog Pacers got in the blockbuster deal that sent George to the Thunder in July 2017, in fought its way back over the final 15 minutes behind the other player it acquired in the deal, Sabonis, and Matthews, who the Pacers signed last month as Oladipo's replacement.
