The Indiana Pacers find themselves trailing at the half for the second time in two games, but things seem a little different tonight against the new look New Orleans Pelicans, who have shot a steady 46.3% with a nice 4-6 three point shooting. The Pelicans are making their own breaks, coming up with 50/50 balls, and hitting the shots they need to hit to keep the lead in double figures. For the Pacers, it's been a fouled up nightmare that they have to be thankful to be just down 14.
Paul George leads Indiana with 13 as Indiana's only double figure scorer. David West has struggled matching up against Anthony Davis, Roy Hibbert has five minutes logged with three fouls, and George Hill has been way out of the loop. For the Pelicans, Davis joins Jrue Holiday (12) and Eric Gordon (15) in double figures. The Pacers have 11 turnovers that have led to 18 Pelicans points, compounding a very poor half. Check out the second half as the Pacers will aim to reverse their fortunes.
