In the offseason, star Pacers forward Paul George suffered one of those quease-inducing compound fractures in his leg, benching him for the season. Because of the unfortunate break, Paul George now fulfills the official role of PR intern and the Pacers struggle early, losing seven of their first 10. But don’t count ’em out yet—Indiana runs a brisk, team-oriented offense, with five players averaging over 10 points per game. The most exciting matchup of the game will occur between offseason workout partners Roy Hibbert and Tim Duncan, who should provide a clinic in big man finesse. $32-$1,666, 7:30pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center, (210) 444-5000, —Matt Stieb

Like the tamale-making gatherings that inspired it, Las Nuevas Tamaleras is a colorful yuletide tradition seasoned with plenty of local flavor. Penned by Brownsville native Alicia Mena in 1990 and first presented in San Antonio in 1993, the one-act comedy paints a comical portrait of three Latinas struggling to make their first ever batch of tamales with assistance from the spirits of veteran tamaleras Doña Mercedes and Doña Juanita. A must for diehard fans, Saturday’s Reception Night ($45) features dinner, drinks and live music by Conjunto Heritage Taller founder Rodolfo Lopez. $12-$45, 8pm Fri-Sat, 3pm Sun, Guadalupe Theater, 1301 Guadalupe, (210) 223-2009, —Bryan Rindfuss
