Pacers Links: Pistons just what Pacers needed back home

New, comments

After a trade mucked up the Pistons prior to tip time, the Pacers took advantage and cashed in an easy home win.

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The Indiana Pacers needed a stress-free win after a pair of stressful losses on the road and the Detroit Pistons provided the perfect situation to make that happen as the Pacers rolled to a 99-78 win at BLF.

The Pistons were dealing with their own issues including sudden change after moving Tayshaun Prince and acquiring Jose Calderon in what will be known as the Rudy Gay trade. But the Pacers took advantage of the situation and cashed in three double-doubles from an unlikely trio in Roy Hibbert, Lance Stehpenson and Tyler Hansbrough.

Now it is time for Indiana to ramp up their level of play for Miami, Chicago and Atlanta starting on Friday.
