Oladipo scored 25 points (9-19 FG, 5-11, 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added eight rebounds, five assists and five steals in 44 minutes of Monday's 99-87 loss to the Heat. Oladipo had what was likely his best game of the year in the Pacers' season finale as he put up his second-highest scoring effort of the season as well as season highs in rebounds and steals. He finished the season on a roll too, scoring at least 20 in his last three contests.
Oladipo had 20 points (8-21 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes during Saturday's 124-115 Game 3 loss to the Heat. Oladipo finished with more field-goal attempts than points and has now connected on just 13-of-37 shots from the field through the first three playoff games. Furthermore, he has combined for twice as many turnovers (10) as assists (five). Oladipo will almost certainly need to play at a higher level if Indiana is going to avoid being swept during Monday's Game 4.
Oladipo (eye) recorded 22 points (5-14 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 8-8 FT), four assists, two steals and one rebound in 36 minutes during Thursday's 109-100 loss to the Heat in Game 2. Oladipo was able to score efficiently and lead the team in points, but he committed a problematic six turnovers to his four assists. Those turnovers tied a season high for Oladipo, a mark he set earlier this month (Aug. 8 against the Lakers).
Oladipo (eye) will play in Thursday's Game 2 against the Heat. Oladipo exited Game 1 after being poked in the eye, and he did not play in the second half. The nature of the injury is still somewhat unclear, but Oladipo was briefly hospitalized Tuesday, so it's likely the eye is still less than 100 percent. Nonetheless, expect Oladipo to start Game 2 as the Pacers attempt to even the series.
Oladipo (eye) went through Wednesday's walkthrough and will be a game-time decision for Thursday's Game 2 against the Heat, Scott Agness of VigilantSports.com reports. Oladipo was poked in the eye during Game 1, forcing him to exit the contest and seek medical attention. No specifics have emerged in regard to the exact nature and/or severity of his injury. If he's ruled out, Edmond Sumner, Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell could all see extra minutes.
