Once again, the Indiana Pacers are getting lit up by the Phoenix Suns, who are taking advantage of every shot as the Pacers allow a season high 66 points as Phoenix shots 53% from the floor while going 6-10 from three point range. The Suns used a 15-2 run to close the first quarter to jump ahead and the Pacers weren't able to trim any off the lead, allowing back-to-back 30 point quarters in the first half.
The game features two All-Star snubs, and there's no doubt Goran Dragic deserves to be one, scoring 21 points on 8-12 shooting. Lance Stephenson meanwhile has 12 points, nine rebounds, and six assists. Indiana's All-Star Reserve Roy Hibbert leads the Pacers with 15 points, but is just 4-12 from the floor and has just one rebound. David West has 12. Paul George continues to struggle, scoring just four points on 2-7 shooting.
