The Indiana Pacers traveled to Miami, FL to battle the Miami Heat Monday night, May 10, 2004 at American Airlines Arena in game three of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Sometimes they would not come out of the half well, others they didn't finish.

Russell Westbrook had one goal on the Thunder's final possession: make it to the rim.

A long road trip continued against a hot Oklahoma City Thunder team on Thursday night, with the Wizards coming up short, 121-112.

"Unbelievable. I think it's just outrageous, in my opinion", Westbrook said.

But from the words of Westbrook and George, it seems as if at the least there's been a bond formed between the superstars, and that the Thunder organization has impressed George since arriving in July.

When Paul George was traded to Oklahoma City from IN this past summer-IN a deal that sent Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis to the Pacers-the trade was quickly decried as a rip-off.

Hernangomez was a productive player as a rookie past year, averaging 8.2 points and 7.0 rebounds per game. "Whatever it is, we still need him to be aggressive the way he was tonight". During the four-game losing skid, Boston had bad quarters seemingly every night.

There were even some people suggesting that maybe they would be better off trading offseason acquisition Paul George for younger players. "They can't finish games", they said. He wanted to go to the Lakers then, but now he's on a possible title contender with Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony by his side. The Thunder, though, still lead the league in steals as a team with 9.4 per game and George is a big reason for that. "We had established a good lead at the end of the third quarter, and it was our job to keep it there until the first unit comes back in".

"I don't think it's any disappointment for me".

Beal finished with a team-high 41 points, 12 rebounds shooting 55% from three-point range. Markief Morris chipped in 20.

Westbrook shared his thoughts on George being left out of the All-Star reserves. The Wizards have a 5-5 record during their last 10-game stretch and are 11-12 in away games this season. Melo said it the best.

The loss is the fourth in the last five games for the Wizards.

Dinwiddie was reluctant to get into specifics about the play after complaining about a lack of respect from officials recently and getting pushback.
