The first Pacers game in the post-Danny Granger era will be about as memorable as the final game with Granger on the roster. At least the Pacers won the game, though.
That's about as excited as anyone can get over the Pacers road win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday. Once again, the Paces proved they can't play on cruise control. After Indiana took a 22-point lead in the first half with some vicious early defense, the scrappy Bucks bounced back when the Pacers exhaled and put up 61 second-half points.
But a win is a win and there was some good to go along with any bad.
The Pacers trio scored 86 of the team's 110 points on just 47 field goal attempts. That's about as crazy as Roy Hibbert and George Hill combining for just four points on 12 field goal attempts. Rasual Butler has some good and not so good filling in Granger's old slot in the rotation. But it appears, from a picture sent to me this morning, that Evan Turner is getting ready to start taking some of those minutes this week.
