After the Indiana Pacers came back in the second half to defeat the visiting Miami Heat on Tuesday night, you’d think they’d want to rest and recover from a game that came close to matching the hype and verve of a playoff contest. Instead, Paul George decided to play Justin Timberlake in a game of H-O-R-S-E while gingerly moving around the court in sandals.
First tweeted out by Pacers.com scribe Scott Agness, George and Timberlake are playing in front of a deserted Bankers Life Fieldhouse, but you can see Frank Vogel in far corner of the court watching.

But in the below video from Rich Nye of Indiana’s WTHR, we see Timberlake hit a shot at the elbow and go over to give Vogel some DAP â€” who knew he was tight with the Pacers (he’s a partial owner of the Grizzlies). Also, why is rookie Trey Burke hanging out in Indianapolis? Utah is in Sacramento tomorrow.
Anyways, watch George labor over to collect the ball in sandals after Timberlake’s shot. He should be icing his knees instead of this, but who are we to chasten George after he held LeBron James to just 17 points on his worst shooting night of the season (6-for-16).
