Danny Grange may have said it best on Monday: “We’re 4-1 on paper.” Or perhaps it was Jalen Rose the other day on a Grantland Network podcast: ”Winning is the best deodorant.” No matter which you prefer, each seems increasingly apt to describe the current state of this Pacers team, which was ran out of the gym 118-83 by the best team in the NBA.
LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined for 33 points, 13 assists and 8 rebounds. Dwyane, of course, didn’t play due to injury. Reportedly, 11 Pacer players did play, but you could have fooled me. It’s really hard to try to analyze anything without jokes in a game that was over by the 14-minute mark. In the second quarter, a game that was previously competitive became more one-sided than a George Hill/Eddy Curry see-saw ride. See, there I go again.
The Pacers shot
1-for-11 1-for-15 in the period while committing 10 turnovers.
What more is there to say? It was 62-39 at the half and turned into a pick-up game.
