Post-Game Grades: Pacers Sleepwalk their Way Through the Helpless Bucks


postgamegrades_610

The Good: The Pacers won.

The Bad: The Pacers were up by 22 points midway through the 2nd quarter. Then they allowed the Bucks (the team with the worst record this season) to go on a 30-15 run midway through the 3rd quarter where the Bucks shot 58.8% and the Pacers only shot 35.7%. A win is a win obviously but this shouldn’t have been as close as it was.

MVP: David West. 

LVP: George Hill.

X-Factor: Ian Mahinmi.

Defining Moment: When the schedule was made.
