Post-Game Grades: Pacers Offense Honors Abe Pollin's Wishes by Bringing No Bullets in Loss to Wizards

postgamegrades_inpost

The Good – The game ended.

The Bad – The game happened.

MVP – The guy who made it a rule that games must end.

LVP – The guy who made it a rule that they had to play all 48 minutes.

X Factor – It’s gotta be the mystifying way in which this team has begun to play as if they just met each other 10 minutes before the game. This team works on balance and continuity. It’s not entirely clear why or how these left, but they are gone. Gone.

And we’re left standing on the front porch, hoping they decide to come home.

Indiana Pacers 78 Final
Recap | Box Score
91 Washington Wizards
David West, PF 32 MIN | 4-10 FG | 2-2 FT | 7 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 4 TO | 10 PTS | -2

Foul trouble early. General non-factor.

Paul George, SF 38 MIN | 6-22 FG | 6-6 FT | 9 REB | 0 AST | 3 STL | 1 BLK | 5 TO | 19 PTS | -3

It was if Paul decided to demonstrate every flaw he has tonight.

Roy Hibbert, C 32 MIN | 3-8 FG | 2-5 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 5 BLK | 3 TO | 8 PTS | -1

Has basically played one, maybe two, good quarters in the last week.

George Hill, PG 38 MIN | 3-6 FG | 2-2 FT | 3 REB | 5 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 8 PTS | -4

Well, this is one way to avoid clutch free throws.

Lance Stephenson, SG 35 MIN | 3-13 FG | 7-8 FT | 14 REB | 4 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 13 PTS | -3

Lotta activity. Little accomplishment.

Lavoy Allen, PF 2 MIN | 0-0 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | +2

Garbage time.

Luis Scola, PF 14 MIN | 5-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 10 PTS | -13

Hey, at least he hit shots again. Not that it mattered.

Evan Turner, SF 14 MIN | 0-4 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 0 PTS | -17

Clueless.

Chris Copeland, SF 7 MIN | 0-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | -5

His job is to hit shots. He didn’t.

Solomon Hill, SF 2 MIN | 0-0 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | +2

Garbage time

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

Did what he does, but gets kinda pointless when the team can’t score.

Donald Sloan, PG 10 MIN | 3-4 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 7 PTS | -9

Only guy in uniform to actually exceed expectations.

Rasual Butler, SG 2 MIN | 0-0 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | +2

Garbage time.
