We can officially say the NBA season is just a week away. Here at Heartland Sports, we are highlighting the biggest match ups of the season. Coming in at number seven is Paul George’s return to Indiana on Thursday, March 14th, at 6PM CT.
OKC gets to return the favor of homecomings by bringing PG back to Indiana. In their last matchup against the Pacers, which was George’s first appearance in Indiana since being traded, George played 33 minutes, but he only managed to score 12 points going 3-14 from the field. After a tough homecoming the first go-around, George will seek to impress his former fan base in what should be a high intensity match up.
The crowd will be expected to flood with boos similar to last year’s matchup. Every time George had possession of the ball, not a second went by before the crowd let him hear it. I expect the meeting in Indiana on March 14th will be no different, as this game will serve as an important one down the stretch.
