The Indiana Pacers registered a zero chill forecast ahead of their much-anticipated game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, marking the first time the organization will see former star forward Paul George after his trade this offseason.
While emotions will be rampant during this game, the Pacers are not sweating the encounter or giving their fans a reason to care, posting an ad featuring trade return Victor Oladipo and not giving George the time of day, noting it’s “just another game tonight.”

George has talked about how he handled things during the offseason and given endless quotes of his relationship with the former franchise and what led to the two parting ways, but the Pacers seem to have turned the page.
Indiana (2-2) is coming off a franchise-best field goal efficiency game, shooting 66.7 percent from the field in a 130-107 win against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday.
The Pacers’ offense has been smooth to start the season, putting up 140 and 130 points in their two wins to start the campaign, making George a distant sight after he spent his first seven seasons with the team.
The All-Star forward admitted this will be an emotional game, as he looks to help his team rebound for a two-game skid today.
