Indiana Pacers Come Up Short on NBA All-Star Saturday
Two of the Indiana Pacers were featured in two separate contests during the NBA All-Star Saturday night festivities. Starting forward Paul George, and reserve player Gerald Green both took part in separate All-Star weekend competitions. Gerald Green was part of the All-Star slam dunk contest on Saturday night, and Paul George took to the court as a participant in the three-point shooting contest. As good as it was to see the Indiana Pacers represented during All-Star weekend, neither Indiana player fared too well in their attempts.
Although the image of Paul George was one of the first things shown during an awesome intro to the Saturday night competitions, the first-time Eastern Conference All-Star kind of fizzled when it came time to shoot the deep balls. George seemed a bit stale when it was his time to shine, and threw up a fair share of clunkers toward the basket. George started off slow, missing all of his shots in the first rack. He caught up near the end, hitting four of his final eight shots, but it was too late. George scored only 10 points, and failed to make it to the second round.
Gerald Green had a more dynamic performance in the slam dunk contest, but could not fare much better than his teammate. Green had one of the more impressive dunks on the night, scoring a perfect 50, on his first dunk. Green lost a few points after that, due to difficulties trying to get his second dunk right. Green also failed to reach the second round of his contest.
