Pacers Links: George Hill, David West ease into lead role

US PRESSWIRE

The Pacers rode David West and George Hill down the stretch for another win on the road.

The Indiana Pacers won their fourth game in five tries on Friday night as they continue to gather a little momentum while leaning on David West and George Hill. The duo combined for 57 points including all five points in the final minute of the game to put the game safely in the W column for the Pacers.

With Hill and West emerging as reliable lead dogs, the Pacers need more consistent support from a variety of sources each night. In Sacramento, the bench let an early lead slip away before Sam Young came on in the second half to help push the Pacers to the win.

Young's big game came at the right time since Lance Stephenson has stopped cold turkey as far as making perimeter shots. But, again, that's manageable with West and Hill leading the way. Now there aren't six guys on the roster trying to fill that lead role which should take pressure off those not yet capable (*cough* Hibbert *cough* *cough* Paul George *cough*).

The Pacers face Golden State on Saturday night and will need a few more players to step up in order to complete the Cali Coast Sweep.
