Pacers’ George Unhappy With Valanciunas’ Physical Play

Pacers forward Paul George took exception to Toronto Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas getting too physical with him down low during the fourth quarter of Indiana’s 100-83 win in Game 4 on Saturday afternoon.

With 5:03 remaining in the game, George and Valanciunas jostled in the paint as Pacers center Ian Mahinmi hit the second of two free throws. Replays appeared to show that Valanciunas caught George around the neck area and then shoved him away.

“All night, Jonas was throwing his elbows and flinging his elbows and trying to lock arms, and it was almost the play before where he did the same thing and I let it slide and Ian shot a free throw,” George said. “I crashed in and tried to get the rebound, and next thing you know, his hands once again are coming up toward my throat. I didn’t like that.”

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jamal Crawford has declined his $4.5 million player option for next season and will become a free agent, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Crawford, a three-time Sixth Man of the Year, will become one of the top reserve scorers on the open market after facing Monday’s deadline to decide on his option.

In his 18th NBA season, Crawford averaged 10.3 points and 20.7 minutes in 80 contests, marking his 16th consecutive year that he scored in double figures per game. He joined the Timberwolves on a two-year contract last offseason and served as a veteran leader for the franchise’s first playoff season since 2004.
