The Indiana Pacers have weathered hot shooting from the Washington Wizards, using a pair of 7-0 runs to close the first and second quarter to keep the game from getting too far out of hand. The Wizards shot 47% in the first half, but were able to get a lot of shots to just go in, fueled by eight assists by former Pacer A.J. Price. The Pacers shot 49%, but extra three pointers have given the Wizards an added advantage.
Lance Stephenson was moved into the starting lineup for tonight's game, making an impact on his first shot as part of his five. Paul George has been wildly efficient, scoring 11 points on 5-5 shooting, hitting the buzzer beater three to tie the game. Gerald Green has seemed far more comfortable tonight, scoring nine off the bench, including a highlight alley oops already. David West has struggled shooting the ball, but has nine.
