Last time I did a Twitter Preview vs. the Orlando Magic, I didn’t know what to make of this Pacer team. They were completing one of those lose-the-games-they-should-win-but-win-the-games-they-should-lose weeks that – in the past – were the hallmark of mediocre teams. This time around, I’m simply not sure how to contain my growing excitement over the way the Pacers are playing. Last night’s win in Dallas was, in my opinion, their most impressive victory in a very long time. Between that, and Paul George’s heroics, I am unable to contain myself to just 140 seconds tonight.
I promise not to make this a regular occurrence.

Well, that’s the housekeeping. Let the gushing begin! (Actual Game Preview content starts at 5:00 mark.)
For my fellow stat geeks and obsessive-compulsives, I give you the fact sheets.
