The Indiana Pacers offense finally started showing some life in the second quarter. After struggling to get above 20 in the first, Indiana put up 31 in the second period to get the 52-47 edge. Indiana had some issues defensively with the Milwaukee Bucks, who trail by five thanks to a number of big shots and some breakdowns on defense from Indiana. The Bucks are also executing on a heavy dose of Monta Ellis, who has 16.
Roy Hibbert leads the Pacers with 10 points, nine rebounds, eight coming on the offensive glass, and four blocks. George Hill and Lance Stephenson each had eight. Foul trouble early shuffled the Pacers rotation, giving time to Jeff Pendergraph and also finding room for Orlando Johnson, who had four on 2-6 shooting. David West and Paul George continue to struggle shooting, going a combined 2-10 for five total points.
