Paul George says he'll probably give a little speech to his teammates before Game 7. As a group, Pacers seem to be excited about opportunity. "That's the motivation right there," George said. "It's win or go home."

"Look man I told you. I'm not talking about Game 5 no more," Stuckey said. "S***'s over. OK? Damn. It's already done. I don't have social media. No, I don't look at people's -- what they f****** post on social media. I'm 30 years old. I'm a grown a** man. I don't listen to that kind of s***. So I'm good. Game 5 is over, we won Game 6. Now we got to focus on Game 7. There you go. Good night."

Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer 

Rodney Stuckey was big down the stretch for the Pacers on Friday, scoring six of his eight points in the 4th quarter. He got asked about Game 5 (1/10 from the field), and the reaction to it, one too many times for his liking on Friday night. Also, he's not a fan of social media.

Frank Vogel, discussing the atmosphere within Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday: It's not a USA vs. Canada game," Vogel said. "But our fans were great tonight. Great."

Vogel leaves George on the floor to start the 2nd quarter. Turner, Stuckey, Miles and Lawson out there as well.

Pacers have to feel pretty good after 1st quarter. Paul George is 0/4. As a team they are shooting 7/22 from the field -- yet they only trail Raptors by 2 after first 12 minutes.

Kevin Pelton ESPN Staff Writer 

Solomon Hill is going to get paid based on this series. The Pacers can only offer $2.3 million by rule so he's almost certain to get more elsewhere.
