Basketball's back for the official 2015-2016 NBA season, so get ready, MstarsNews readers!
The Indiana Pacers battle it out on the court against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Week 16 of the regular season on Friday, February 19 at 8:00 p.m. EST from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma. Read on to see where fans can watch and listen to a live stream of the highly-anticipated Friday evening basketball game online and catch up-to-date feeds and coverage on highlight plays and scores.
Following this month's monumental All-Star Weekend, both Oklahoma City and Indiana maintain rather impressive top spots in Marc Stein's official NBA power rankings for ESPN.com (out of a total 30 teams):
Thunder (3): " Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are on course to join LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, as well as Bob Pettit and Cliff Hagan, on the short list of duos in league history to finish among the top three in PER in any given season. Yet even after the amazing first half they've shared, that's as much basketball as we can get into here in the wake of the Ingrid Williams tragedy."
Record: 40-14 (3rd in Western Conference).
Pacers (9): "Ready to feel old? As we await a potential George Hill trade (or something bigger?) from the Pacers this week, bear in mind that All-Star Weekend marked the 30th anniversary of Larry Bird's Three-Point Contest triumph in Dallas. As for Paul George: His 41 All-Star points trumped Michael Jordan's 40 in 1988, tied Russell Westbrook's total in 2015 and fell one shy of Wilt Chamberlain's in 1962."
Record: 28-25 (6th in Eastern Conference).
