What was good in the Pacers win over Toronto?
The first quarter started quickly for the Pacers, scoring 10 points in the first 2 minutes of the game, including this Mathurin three-point shot.
Brissett had a quick three-pointer to start the game, Turner hit a few shots early, but Nembhard was the difference in the first quarter, scoring 14 points in the opening frame. By the end of the first quarter, the Pacers were shooting 75% from the field, 66.7% from three, and had a lead of 36-26. A great first quarter to say the least!
The Pacers have been working hard to get quicker starts to game, but the reality is that shots just need to fall. The game of basketball really is not that complicated at times, but the Pacers sometimes start out slowly and have to claw back into games., but it has been encouraging to see the energy and efficiency of games like this one. I mean, look at this play…
