The Pacers two newest players found some chemistry late in the first quarter against the Pistons. After failing to convert an Evan Turner to Andrew Bynum alley oop earlier in the game (Turner’s pass hit the net), the two found paydirt twice during their first stint together on the court.
Bynum has tried to tell his teammates that they should willingly feed him inside since he is often able to draw a double and then find the open man. He did exactly that here, patiently waiting and then flipping the ball to Turner beneath the cup for the layup.
Turner wasted no time repaying the favor. After nearly getting the ball taken from him in the back court by Brandon Jennings (Turner was playing some emergency point guard since C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan were both out), he pushed it ahead and threw a soft lob to Bynum for the flush after Andrew’s man stepped up to stop penetration.
As of press time, the Pacers were getting ran by the Pistons, but it’s still nice to see these guys start to develop some chemistry.
