Nate McMillan rested Paul George and juggled his playing rotations in a 121-105 loss to the Bulls on Saturday. On episode 7 of Locked on Pacers, we hit on how Glenn Robinson III is getting an opportunity to earn minutes and what lies ahead for the Pacers in their two games this week.
On Wednesday, the Pacers host the Bucks in Evansville but don't fret, FSI will televise the game locally. Then on Friday the Pacers meet up with Frank Vogel in Orlando to play the Magic with their growing collection of big men battling for roles in the rotation.
The best news from the weekend was Myles Turner returning to game action. He only played about 15 minutes but was able to finally join the fray for game action after a deliberate trip through the NBA concussion protocol. Turner's help-side D was in regular season form as he delivered a highlight block for the Pacers by denying Jimmy Butler's attempted finish at the rim. A beautiful sight, indeed!
