Here are the top five Indiana Pacers stories from this week:
- Paul George returned!
- Not only did Paul George return to game action but he played better than expected.
- The Pacers remain in the hunt for the playoffs heading into weekend play.
- Chris Copeland was the victim of a knife attack in the wee hours of the morning when the Pacers were in New York to play the Knicks.
- Frank Vogel wasn't happy Copeland found himself in position to be harmed, but the fact the forward is not hurt worse is far more important.
