The Bad

The beginning of the second half was abysmal. A quick run by the Spurs lead the Pacers to be down by 9 points early in the 3rd quarter. Luckily, George Hill hit a big three-pointer to stop the bleeding, but the Spurs were on cruise control after the halftime break. Shots that weren’t falling early were all falling in the third quarter. The Pacers had a hard time stopping the momentum, especially when Spurs forward, Jeremy Sochan, already had 20 points with about 4 minutes to go in the 3rd quarter and Devin Vassell hit a few big threes to give the Spurs an 11 point lead with 2:14 to go in the quarter and ended up with a 13 point advantage over the Pacers by the end of the quarter. Indiana never recovered…

For the Pacers, a few quick layups were able to get the Pacers back in the game, but it definitely was not a good quarter.
