Pacers Links: Pacers have to move on from Memphis loss as they head to Chicago

After a miserable offensive outing in Memphis, the Pacers will spend the day in Chicago preparing for a motivated Bulls team on Monday night.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The Pacers reached a new low in their Saturday night loss to the Grizzlies. Literally. The Pacers were only able to muster a season-low 71 points which was actually quite impressive considering the 30-point first half the put on the board.

The Pacers were nudged out of their comfort zone by the Grizzlies in a physical game that should've been to Indiana's liking. Instead, all of those shots that were falling at home on Friday didn't get the friendly bounce on the road and the negative feedback continued to snowball with the end result being another frustrating road loss.

The Pacers continue to maintain a three-game lead in the East after another loss by the Miami Heat, also on the road at New Orleans. The two teams play at the Fieldhouse on Wednesday, but first the Pacers will have to deal with a rematch against the Bulls in Chicago on Monday. Gonna need to make a few buckets at the United Center.

As for the offense in Memphis, the Pacers really needed some one like this guy to drain a few shots with ease.
