INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - It was officially back to business for the Pacers Saturday afternoon as the Blue and Gold opened up training camp at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Danny Granger returned for his first full practice since undergoing season-ending knee surgery six months ago.
“I think it was a good practice for us,” said Granger. “For me, honestly, it went better than expected. I felt great."
Paul George was matched up against Granger several times during Saturday’s practice, and said he looks like the old Danny with no visible setbacks. George also engaged in a little banter about getting to compete against Granger.
"Coming in here in my rookie year, I was always taking a beating from Danny, so it's fun to kind of dish out a little bit," said George.
"What did Paul say?,” responded Granger jokingly. “No comment.”
