Post-Game Grades: Pacers Not in the Mood, Get Embarrassed in Charlotte

The Good – Evan Turner made a couple nice post moves and drove to the rack a few times.

The Bad – Indiana scored 8 points in the first quarter. EIGHT. Two less than 10. The Ocho. Moreover, the DPOY favorite got abused all night by Al Jefferson, Paul George played like Paul Simon, Lance Stephenson did this, and essentially everyone on the team (plus its coach) spent more time pleading with the refs than they did being accountable for themselves.

MVP – Al Jefferson. He was an absolute beast in the first half, and scored 34 points on 25 shots while making Roy Hibbert look like a shorter Hasheem Thabeet. Monster mash.

LVP - Paul George. 2 points on 0-for-9 shooting with 5 turnovers? I mean …

X Factor – Chris Douglas-Roberts. He hit all 3 of this 3-point attempts and had 12 points before any Pacer player had more than 10.
