The Indiana Pacers felt real good about leaving Memphis with a win over the Grizzlies on Monday. Both teams attacked each other with playoff intensity right down to the final buzzer.

In a game like the one we watched yesterday, the hows and whys take a back seat to the W. As Mike Wells reported, Paul George captured the feeling of how satisfying the win was over the Grizz.

"This was huge for us," Pacers swingman Paul George said. "You're talking about the two top defenses in the league. It definitely had a playoff feel to it. It was a straight grind-it-out game. We knew coming into this game we were going to have to execute and put points up to win."
