Pacers' Paul George reportedly robbed during Game 5 loss to Hawks
Things have gotten very ugly for the Pacers in recent days, punctuated by a 107-97 loss to the Hawks in Game 5 on Monday. However, a 3-2 hole isn't the only thing troubling Indiana star Paul George right now.
Kristine Guerra of the Indianapolis Star reports that George was the victim of a burglary in his home during Game 5:
A diamond-studded NBA All-Star ring, worth about $15,000, was among the items stolen from Indiana Pacers player Paul George during a burglary Monday night.
Police were called shortly before midnight to the Diamond Pointe Drive home north of East 86th Street on the Geist Reservoir. Aside from the ring, a $700 Flux watch, a pair of red Jordan 4 Toro tennis shoes and $20 also were missing, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department report.
A few weeks ago, Lakers guard Nick Young was also burglarized during a game. George finished with 26 points, 12 rebounds, six assists and six steals on Monday. The Pacers look to keep their season alive when they visit Atlanta for Game 6 on Thursday.
