The Pacers ended the weekend with a difficult task of stopping the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Pacers were in the game in the first quarter, limiting the Donovan Mitchell early in the game and controlling the paint with Myles Turner as the defensive anchor.

As the game progressed, the Pacers were not able to hang with Cleveland, falling 122-103, in a game where the Cavs dominated whenever Turner was out of the game. Daniel Theis did his best to contain the Cavs, but it just wasn’t the same. By the end of the 3rd quarter, the Cavs had already scored 98 points and cruised to the victory.

To all of those Pacers fans who love the beloved Boomer, let’s not forget today is his birthday! Anyone who has been to Gainbridge Fieldhouse knows how amazing Boomer is. I know that my family is always thrilled to watch Boomer go to the rafters in the 4th quarter and roam around the arena making people smile and laugh throughout the game.
