Indiana star Victor Oladipo said after Sunday's Game 1 win over Cleveland that he was aware of Cavs owner Dan Gilbert's snide comment this summer regarding the Paul George trade.
Gilbert, speaking at a press conference to introduce new Cavs general manager Koby Altman in July, said of the Pacers' trade: "I will say that Indiana could have done better than it did."
Indiana traded George to the Oklahoma City Thunder in return for Oladipo and second-year center Domantas Sabonis. The blossoming guard blitzed the Cavs on Sunday for 32 points on 11-of-19 shooting, including 6-of-9 from the three-point line. It was LeBron James' first loss in the first round since 2012.
