Pacers fans are still clapping for forward Paul George. George did all he could during Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game to deliver a victory, however the East still lost to the West in a ‘you know they were all showing out’ 196-173 high scoring game. Toronto was the host city for the NBA event with the game played at the Air Canada Centre. George scored 41 points and fell just one-point short of Wilt Chamberlain’s record for most points scored in the exhibition game. However he knocked down a record nine three pointers. He didn’t get Wilt’s record but walked away making a little history of his own.
The Pacers are back in action on Friday, February 19 as they hit the road to Chesapeake Energy Arena to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at 8 p.m. Eastern.
Other highlights from the All-Star Game included Russell Westbrook being named MVP of the game for the second straight season; and it was Kobe Bryant’s last appearance in the game before his NBA retirement at the end of this season.
