Indiana Bounces Back to Beat Down Boston

It looked like another slow, plodding, and sad performance for the Pacers’ summer league squad as they trailed 30-14 to the Boston Celtics at the end of the first quarter.
Then this happened.

Through the middle quarters Indiana outscored the Celtics 65-27 on their way to a 96-77 win in the second game of the Pacers summer league schedule. Five Pacers scored in double-digits with Willie Reed and Kevin Jones leading the way with 18 and 17 points, respectively. Donald Sloan had 14. It was a much better shooting performance than their first game, this time shooting 48.4 percent from the field. Boston’s scorers were led by Kelly Olynyk with 15 and rookie Marcus Smart had 11.

The Pacers are off on Tuesday before getting back in the saddle on Wednesday and face the Oklahoma City Thunder at 3 p.m
