Post Game Grades: Pacers Blow 17-point Lead, Lose to Spurs

It’s unfair to sum this game up as just 0-for-14, but I don’t feel like being fair at the moment. However, if the offense keeps moving in the direction it has over the last couple of games, then I’ll make it up later. For now, this picture is really the bottom line.

Last 5 minutes of Pacers’ Loss to San Antonio

Here is how each guy played individually tonight. Agree? Disagree? Express your thoughts below in the comments or yell at me (@8pts9secs) or Tim (@TimDonahue8p9s) on Twitter.

David West – 30 MIN | 7-13 FG | 8-11 FT | 8 REB | 3 AST | 22 PTS

An otherwise strong performance marred by 0-for-3 inside 8 feet and 2-for-4 from the line over the last five minutes, contributing to the Pacers collapse

Paul George - 34 MIN | 6-14 FG | 1-2 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 15 PTS

Was a non-factor defensively, and only scored 5 points after the half.

Roy Hibbert – 30 MIN | 5-18 FG | 0-0 FT | 11 REB | 2 AST | 10 PTS

No clue why Indiana ran post action to him with the score tied at 95. Thoroughly unreliable offensive player now shooting under 38% from inside 8 feet on the season.

George Hill – 34 MIN | 5-15 FG | 1-1 FT | 4 REB | 7 AST | 11 PTS

Generally eaten up by Tony Parker (33 points on 15-for-23 shooting), Missed a lot of good looks early, some iffy looks late.

Lance Stephenson - 25 MIN | 4-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 2 AST | 9 PTS

Ridiculous move on Tony Parker. Another great push on the break, but other than that…

Tyler Hansbrough - 18 MIN | 1-3 FG | 1-2 FT | 12 REB | 3 PTS

11 rebounds in first stint, 1 in rest. Maybe should have been on the floor at the end of game instead of Roy, but if that’s true, then, well…God help ‘em.

Sam Young - 20 MIN | 2-5 FG | 1-2 FT | 4 REB | 0 AST | 6 PTS

He was Sam Young.

Gerald Green – 16 MIN | 2-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 2 AST | 6 PTS

Didn’t really notice him.

Ian Mahinmi – 17 MIN | 3-7 FG | 1-2 FT | 3 REB | 7 PTS

Good strong 1st half performance. Not much second time around.

D.J. Augustin - 15 MIN | 3-7 FG | 1-1 FT | 8 AST | 8 PTS

Far and away his best performance of the season. Very positive impact on the game.
