I don't know...it's embarrassing to go scoreless in an OT period...(D'oh!)

The Pacers scored 87 points in the fourth quarter of a game August 31, 1986 against Portland.

You're right, count. This isn't the answer that I was looking for, but a good answer none-the-less.

Well, the Pacers are the only NBA team ever to lap an opponent. That's pretty damn impressive.

Good idea, dukie, and very generous. Thanks for being such an active participant here at PD. It is good to have you around here!

Also, yes, I knew that wasn't the answer I blurted out. First, I wouldn't jack up dukie's cool contest like that. Second, I didn't need or want the tickets, and I wouldn't jack someone else out of it. Third, who scored 87 points in a quarter?!

Congrats DGPR for winning! I will be there tomorrow night also, in our beloved Section 104. I will try to sniper you. I know what sec., row, and seats you have!
