During the lockout-shortened season last year, the Pacers posted a pair of wins on the road against the Bucks and appeared to put their past struggles behind them. Of course, the Bucks were in a bit of transition last year without Andrew Bogut in the middle. In fact, Drew Gooden started both games last season for the Bucks at center.
In the previous three years, the Pacers were 1-5 at the Bradley Center and like last night, playing comparable teams but for some reason not playing at close to a winning level. So the Pacers are now 0-2 at the Bradley Center this season and they earned those two L's.
The Pacers appeared to be the better team in the first half last night with the ability to control the game, yet 14 turnovers kept them from seizing the game. Those wasted opportunities to build an early lead came back to haunt them in the second half as the Bucks and Brandon Jennings caught fire to deliver the Pacers another frustrating loss in Milwaukee.
The Pacers have to bounce back quickly on Wednesday night when they host the Utah Jazz with Gordon Hayward making his annual visit to the Fieldhouse. The Jazz helped the Pacers out on Tuesday night by pulling off an impressive road win over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday.
