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.”
