INDIANA: GUARDS: GEORGE HILL is less of a creator and more of a game-manager/scorer, which fits fine in this starting five . . . LANCE STEPHENSON continues to be an enigma. His speed pushing the ball in transition is an asset, but his terrible shooting and bizarre decision-making often makes him a liability in the half court . . . C.J. WATSON has proven to be a capable second-unit point guard, but he's on his third team in three years because he's managed to give away two playoff games with monumentally bad moments . . . ORLANDO JOHNSON is unlikely to see meaningful minutes, but his role should grow slightly now that Gerald Green is gone. FORWARDS: This is PAUL GEORGE'S team. Once a do-it-all role player, he's now polished enough to create his own offense . . . As expected, DAVID WEST bounced back in his second season off a torn ACL. He's still deadly as a mid-range shooter, a savvy passer and a strong rebounder . . . LUIS SCOLA slides into Tyler Hansbrough's old role as a second-unit banger, and insurance for West and Roy Hibbert . . . DANNY GRANGER is in no-man's land. He's not better than Paul George, and probably no longer an upgrade over Lance Stephenson. His best asset may be his expiring deal . . . CHRIS COPELAND can't defend, but gives the Pacers a three-point threat . . . SOLOMON HILL doesn't figure to contribute this season. CENTERS: ROY HIBBERT proved capable of handling more minutes last season, but Indy will likely still be cautious with their asthmatic 7-foot-2 center during the regular season . . . IAN MAHINMI is back to give his six fouls and move some bodies out of the paint.
OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK is going to likely miss the first 4-to-6 weeks of the regular season after getting another procedure done on Oct. 1 to reduce swelling on his knee. It will probably take him some time to get rid of the rust of not playing all summer . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA should play even more minutes this season with Kevin Martin gone. He has added a three-point shot to his repertoire . . . REGGIE JACKSON could end up absorbing a lot of the minutes that went to James Harden two years ago and Martin last season. But he's nowhere near the offensive threat . . . JEREMY LAMB will push Jackson for that sixth-man role. He's dominated against lesser competition . . . DEREK FISHER will get minutes as a player/coach. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT may have to take on an even bigger role in the regular season as the Thunder try to replace Kevin Martin's offensive production. Either way, he's the MVP among the league's non-LeBrons . . . SERGE IBAKA has had his postseason issues and still struggles defensively outside of rim protection, but he has added value with his mid-range shooting . . . NICK COLLISON's biggest skill is his ability to take charges. He'll continue to log big minutes at the four and five as a glue guy . . . One of two very raw young players, PERRY JONES III and ANDRE ROBERSON, has a chance for playing time on a thin team. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS was a disaster in last year's postseason, but still provides the kind of low-post muscle the Thunder look for . . . Rookie STEVEN ADAMS could take over for Perkins down the road, but he's too raw to make an impact this year . . . HASHEEM THABEET fills out the final roster spot.

*Pacers-Thunder Preview* ========================


Indiana (17-2) at Oklahoma City (14-4), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Indiana Pacers easily dispatched a leading team in the Western Conference in one of the final games of a lengthy road trip.

They won't have to wait long to face another one of the West's best.

Indiana will try to conclude its five-game trek by ending the Oklahoma City Thunder's perfect home record Sunday night.

After trailing by 13 in the first half, the Pacers (18-2) led by as many as 26 in the fourth quarter of a 111-100 victory against San Antonio and snapped an 11-game skid to the perennial title contender. Paul George's 28 points led seven players in double figures, and David West scored 20 while making 9 of 12 shots.

"I couldn't be happier with how they played, particularly in the second and third quarter," coach Frank Vogel said. "Second quarter, getting back in the game, but in the third quarter, really busting it open. Tough to pick a star in the game with as many contributions as we got. Just great balance and a great team win."

The victory boosted Indiana to 3-1 on its trip and was also its ninth in the last 10 overall. The Pacers will try to close out their trek by beating a team that's been equally as hot.

Oklahoma City (14-4) bounced back from its lone defeat in its last 10 games - 111-104 at Portland on Wednesday - with a 109-95 win in New Orleans on Friday.

"We were really disappointed in how we lost last game and wanted to be better," said Kevin Durant, who scored a team-leading 29 points. "We're a really good team after losses."

The Thunder, 9-0 on their own floor, will seek their best start there since they went 12-0 as the Seattle SuperSonics in 1993-94. Oklahoma City has won seven of its last eight home games against Indiana and the past three by an average of 13.7 points.

The Pacers are the league's only other team without a home loss so far, also going 9-0.

"We're going to a very good team that is playing extremely well right now, so it's going to be a challenge," guard Thabo Sefolosha told the team's website. "If we focus on us and do the things we know we're good at and are successful at doing, we'll be okay."

The Thunder have taken four of five overall in the series and won last season's two games by a combined 33 points. Durant averaged 30.5 points and 8.5 rebounds in those two victories and his 30.1-point average in 11 career matchups with Indiana is his second-best against any opponent.

Russell Westbrook is averaging 26.0 points, 8.2 assists and 7.2 rebounds in his last five games against the Pacers.

George is averaging 10.3 points and shooting 31.1 percent in his four career games versus the Thunder but is among the league's leading scorers with 24.8 points per game this season. He's averaged 26.6 on the road.

West is averaging 25.0 points and shooting 54.8 percent shooting in his last six visits to Oklahoma City.
