OKC Thunder

As a result, Indiana Pacers' forward Paul George and Los Angeles Clippers' point guard Chris Paul were selected as the Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Month, respectively. In doing so, they clinched the 7-seed and face second-seeded Cleveland in Round 1. They combined for 27 points, with Ilyasova putting up 15.

IN was so far ahead at the end of the third quarter, 84-68, coach Nate McMillan could have given his best players some extra rest.

George averaged an NBA-high 32.8 points per game and added 8.2 rebounds and 4.5 assists during Indiana's April surge, which culminated in a playoff spot for the sixth time in seven seasons.

Game 2 will be Monday at 7 p.m. on TNT. As for Paul, he averaged 21.2 points, 9.8 assists, five rebounds and two three-pointers per game this month. Center Dwight Howard sat out with tightness in his back but coach Mike Budenholzer said he didn't believe the injury was serious.

April 1 vs. L.A. Lakers: Recorded 29 points, 12 assists and four rebounds in a 115-104 win against the Lakers. But he left the game and did not return with 2:08 to go after appearing to injure his left ankle. And with five 3s, George also tied Miller (195) for the third highest single-season total in the Pacers' NBA history.
