Post Game Grades: David West, Paul George and Lance Stephenson Beat Lowly Bucks

postgamegrades_inpost

 

The Good - David West, Paul George and Lance Stephenson combined for 86 points on nearly 60% shooting.

The Bad - The rest of the team only scored 24 points on 24.2%.

Also the Pacers gained a 22 point lead with 6 minutes left in the 2nd quarter which forced the Bucks to call a timeout. From that timeout until the 6 minute mark in the 3rd quarter, the Pacers were outscored 36-16 while shooting 33% and allowing the Bucks to shoot 66%. If you consider yourself the best team in the league, you can’t do that against the team with the worst record in the NBA…

MVP - David West. The Pacers were playing through him in the 4th quarter and the Bucks had absolutely no answer. No double team? Easy basket. Double team? Found the open man beyond the arc.

LVP - George Hill. Zero points, zero rebounds, one assist and two turnovers. Ugh.

X Factor - Lance Stephenson. 15 points on 5 of 7 from the field and 2 of 2 from deep in the fourth quarter.

Indiana Pacers 110 FinalRecap | Box Score 100 Milwaukee Bucks
David West, PF 33 MIN | 11-16 FG | 8-10 FT | 7 REB | 5 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 30 PTS | +5 

Mr. West owned the building.

Paul George, SF 36 MIN | 10-18 FG | 7-9 FT | 5 REB | 3 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 32 PTS | +6 

Great game shooting. 5 of 7 from deep and 12 of 18 from deep over the last 3 games. Starting to get back into the rhythm from the beginning of the season.

Roy Hibbert, C 34 MIN | 1-9 FG | 2-3 FT | 6 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 3 BLK | 2 TO | 4 PTS | +4 

Roy can never get a failing grade because of his rim protection but 1 of 9? C’mon big fella…

George Hill, PG 31 MIN | 0-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 1 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 0 PTS | +6 

I’m still trying to figure out how he played 31 minutes last night.

Lance Stephenson, SG 37 MIN | 7-13 FG | 7-10 FT | 9 REB | 8 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 24 PTS | +8 

Another near triple-double.

Luis Scola, PF 15 MIN | 2-7 FG | 1-2 FT | 4 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 5 PTS | +5 

Gotta start hitting those open mid-range shots.

Ian Mahinmi, C 14 MIN | 1-2 FG | 3-4 FT | 4 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 2 BLK | 1 TO | 5 PTS | +6 

If Ian plays like this every game, Bynum won’t be seeing minutes for a while.

C.J. Watson, PG 17 MIN | 1-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 2 PTS | +4 

Don’t remember him doing much. Stat line agrees.

Rasual Butler, SG 23 MIN | 3-10 FG | 1-2 FT | 4 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 8 PTS | +6 

Solid production without Granger or Turner.
