The Pacers pooped their pants tonight in the fourth quarter against the Kings zone, watching what was once a 16-point lead turn into a four-point loss. Plenty of teams give up big leads but it was the utter futility they displayed doing it that was so ugly. They scored 8 points in the fourth, committing 9 turnovers and shooting 3-for-16. Yikes.
Paul George led the charge of horrible, committing three bone-headed turnovers in the period. But it looks like his confidence isn’t shaken. Check the tweet he sent out after the game. “Dropped the ball tonight! #Literally”
That there is brilliant. And the very fact that he is one of about three people I’ve seen/heard use the word “literally” in a proper, non-extraneous way in the past, oh, six months makes his mistakes forgivable.
