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.
