The National Basketball Association is going after gun violence. The N.B.A. is using some of its star players in TV commercials calling for an end to gun violence. One of the league’s most prominent players, Golden State Warriors’ Champion Stephen Curry will also participate. This project was the idea of director Spike Lee, according to the New York Times. Lee, whose latest film Chi-Raq addresses gun violence with a backdrop of the violence in Chicago as a motivating theme, proposed the idea to the president of sports network ESPN. The network executive then lobbied for the idea with the commissioner of the N.B.A. The commercial will run five times during the N.B.A.’s marquee Christmas Day games.

In Pacers’ action…

Paul George shot just 5-of-19 from the field on Wednesday night as the Sacramento Kings slipped past the Indiana Pacers, 108-106, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. George finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds.  Monta Ellis dropped 21 points for the Pacers, while C.J. Miles and George Hill added 20 apiece in the loss. This marks a three-game skid for the Pacers as they prepare to hit the road again to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday.

In Colts’ action…

The Indianapolis Colts head to South Beach to go head-to-head with the Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium on Sunday. Indy looks to snap a three-game losing streak in which they’ve been outscored 112-36. Back-up quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is expected to start for the Colt, with Charlie Whitehurst serving as his back-up. Andrew Luck is still out recovering from a lacerated kidney. This match-up in Miami and the final game are critical for the team. The Colts need great play and miracles to make it into the postseason. Their routes are for the stars to align allowing them to win both games while the Houston Texans have to lose their final two, or Indy takes a loss on Sunday while Houston loses their next two. Then the Colts would regain and clinch the division with a 7-and-9 record on the season.
