Post-Game Grades: Pacers Use Headband Powers, Win Regular Season Finale

postgamegrades_inpost

The Good: Limited minutes from Hibbert and Hill allowed bench guys to contribute, and they did nicely. Lavoy Allen had a fun second half. At one point in the second quarter, Chris Copeland was used as a screener, initiating post ups and defended Tobias Harris. Evan Turner and Donald Sloan drove to the hoop and scored. Luis Scola was good in the first half. There was a lot of good tonight.

The Bad: Some hilariously bad close outs but nothing bad happened. Fun game.

MVP: Coin flip between Rasual Butler and Chris Copeland. I’ll give it to Rasual Butler. He dunked on an Orlando Magic player that I can’t remember.

LVP: Nobody deserves this.

X Factor: Lavoy Allen had a double-double in 28 minutes.
