I missed this game almost entirely, save for a handful of mobile updates I was able to sneak in through travel and family commitments last night. Knowing the game was close throughout, I assumed the Pacers put forth one of their better efforts of the season.
So I was shocked when I was finally able to check a box score and then read the game reports. The Pacers shot below 40% from the field and less than 20% from behind the arc, yet they still led the game with less than a minute to play?
That sounds like crazy talk and indicates the Pacers found alternate ways to succeed last night, even if the end result didn't show it.
