The Indiana Pacers are back in Indiana hunting for some sleep as the try to prepare to face the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday. Resetting the ol' sleeping habits hasn't been easy as this tweet exchange between Donald Sloan and C.J. Watson can attest.
Man been up since 5:30 bro "@Quietstorm_32: Time clock is all off still on Asia time can't get any good sleep smh"— Donald Sloan (@dsloan15) October 15, 2013
Ready or not, the Mavs are in town and the Pacers have a chance to start showing a little more life in their game. Regardless of which players are in or out of the lineup, putting together some long stretches of quality basketball, shedding the turnover bug and winning the hustle play battle would be nice to see.
There certainly wasn't enough of that play in Manila nor Taipei which I spoke about on latest episode The Phil Naessens Show in the final slot after talk about the Utah Jazz and fantasy basketball. Check it out here or listen below.
