The one thing the Indiana Pacers had going for them in an otherwise lost night was their ability to close big gaps with strong play to end each of the four quarters. Unfortunately, the play at the end of quarters didn't overshadow what was largely entire quarters of poor play by the Pacers, who couldn't withstand a pair of late buckets from Rudy Gay and Darren Collison sending the Pacers into the loss column, ending the Sacramento Kings losing streak.
C.J. Miles and David West each had 17 to lead the Pacers, but Miles's went just 1-9 from three point range, his misses costing the Pacers late. The Pacers were 5-25 from three point range despite good looks. Rudy Gay (29), Darren Collison (23), and DeMarcus Cousins (20) led all scorers.
