“You're not going to find a tougher back-to-back … and not to pile on any more, the third team coming up is pretty hot also — New York.”

Pacers All-Star forward Paul George said he's looking forward to defending three-time scoring champ Kevin Durant.

“(Durant) knows the game, he knows the angles, he knows how to position himself and handle the ball well,” George told the Indianapolis Star. “He shoots the ball well. He's a complete nightmare for a defender. It will be a tough night for me. I'm aware of that. The only thing I can do is to try to get him to take tough shots, send him to Roy (Hibbert inside), and continue to guard guys like I have all year.”
