Pacers Links: Pacers' win over Thunder about as good as it gets for Pacers this season

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers had the Fieldhouse rocking on Sunday afternoon as they delivered an impressive win over the Thunder.

The Pacers played arguably their best game of the year on Sunday afternoon when they closed out the Oklahoma City Thunder by both finding ways to score down the stretch while also getting key stops against Thunder and MVP-o-be, Kevin Durant.

I still think the Pacers were more impressive in their road win at San Antonio back in December, but considering the current circumstances, the win on Sunday certainly measures up. The fact that C.J. Watson led a reserve effort that never let the Thunder get rolling, was a nice development to take into the playoffs this weekend. It also avenged the thumping the Pacers took in Oklahoma City the night after beating the Spurs.

The win also left the Pacers without a win against just two teams in the NBA for the season. Both Phoenix and Dallas were able to beat the Pacers in their two meetings this season, with the Mavs the only playoff team to make that claim.
