The Pacers have cruised past their last three opponents thanks to an outburst of excellence from their young wing players.
Oops! They did it, again!
The Pacers' dynamic duo of Paul George and Lance Stephenson each dropped 26 points on the Brooklyn Nets, teaming up for the third game in a row, to help the Pacers blow out an opponent in entertaining fashion. The players are enjoying the ride so much they were left with nothing to bicker about on the bus ride to the airport except for the career exploits of Miley Cyrus vs. Britney Spears.
This three game stretch by the 23-year-old wings heading into the Christmas break has left plenty of good tidings for the Pacers, along with a 23-5 record. In the wins over Houston, Boston and Brooklyn, George and Stephenson combined to average 42.7 points, 14.3 rebounds and 10.7 assists. And the flair they with which they put together those numbers has been something to watch.
But this is hardly a two-man show. The improved offensive ball movement and vicious defense which gets the Pacers running on O, has forced their past three opponents to fade away. Now the Pacers have to enjoy their rest with a couple of days off and no game until returning to the Fieldhouse to play the Nets on Saturday night.
