The Indiana Pacers missed their first 11 shots as the Charlotte Bobcats scored the first eight points of the game as part of a 10-1 run. The Pacers found their way back into the game, jumping out to an eight point lead early in the second quarter, but inability to get baskets inside the three point arc has really haunted the Pacers, only scoring two points in the second quarter, shooting 9-36 for the game inside.
Paul George is missing tonight's game with the flu, and his lack of presence has really turned this game into a big mess. The Bobcats are dominating the Pacers in transition points, outscoring Indiana 10-0 on fast break points. Lance Stephenson leads the Pacers with nine, George Hill and Gerald Green each have eight. The Pacers are shooting 33% while allowing 48%.
