    Tim Donahue: But, Seriously, Pacers Rally to Beat Hornets

    I wanted to try really hard to bail on this game, but the truth of the matter is that there
    was nothing else to do, and I was too lazy to try really hard. Despite my first version of
    these grades, I ended up watching the whole game, which really came down to the Pacers
    showing up and being absolutely dominant for one quarter, then making plays down the
    stretch.

    There were two key junctures of Indiana’s 81-75 victory. First was the third quarter,
    where the Pacers outscored New Orleans 24-7, while holding the Hornets to 35 points per
    100. It allowed the Blue-and-Gold to completely erase a 17-point halftime deficit, despite
    missing five of their eight free throw attempts.

    The second came over the final 3:40, where Indiana finished the game on a 16-5 run.
    Lance Stephenson chipped in 4 points – including a crucial put back of a Paul George miss
    and a layup set up beautifully by George Hill. Hill himself has become the kind of player
    that is capable of making big contributions, even when he was struggling. The mark of a
    valuable player.

    And then, of course, was David West. West scored eight of the Pacers’ final 16 points,
    including a classic mid-range fadeaway to give Indy a 79-75 lead with under 15 seconds
    left. By the time, West and the Pacers were done, they were four games over .500, only
    percentage points behind Chicago for the Central Division lead.

    While that’s an articulate statement...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s
