Paul George vs. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: George is coming off a spectacular game versus the Portland Trail Blazers. He scored 37 points, made 13 of 27 shots overall and made five 3-pointers.
▪ Former Hornets center Al Jefferson signed with the Pacers over the summer. He’s finding his shots as an Indiana reserve, having reached double-figure scoring in three of his last five games.
▪ The Hornets have won four in a row over the Pacers, inclduing two at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
▪ Former Wake Forest point guard Jeff Teague moved to Indianapolis in an off-season trade with the Atlanta Hawks.
▪ One of the Pacers’ challenges this season is coordinating three starters — George, Teague and Monte Ellis — who all need the ball a lot to be effective.
