What a game last night! I thought the Indiana Pacers would be able to pull it out in regulation, you know...with a huge lead going into the fourth. However, Derrick Rose checked back into the game...that guy can get wherever he wants whenever he wants to, and he finishes. Luol Deng and Joakim Noah tried to do what they could to help Rose, but couldn't get things rolling...
The Pacers now are 3-1 this week so far and can finish off a strong week tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies. How many of us really thought going 4-1 was a possibility going into this week?? I was hoping to split, but I am very happy to have seen the fight and energy Danny Granger, Tyler Hansbrough, Roy Hibbert, Darren Collison and everyone else have shown this week after a rough stretch in which energy was non-existent.
After the jump, check out the links of the day, including Lance Stephenson back on the pine...
