Pacers Podcast: Fatal fade in third quarter sends Pacers to loss against Bucks

New, comment

On the latest Locked on Pacers episode we dig into the third quarter stretch that put the Pacers down for good in Milwaukee

NBA: Indiana Pacers at Milwaukee Bucks Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers started chasing the Bucks from behind early in the second quarter but by the end of the first half were only six points down. After giving up nine points on five turnovers in 2Q, the game figured to remain close after cleaning up things at the half.

Hope lasted through one possession in the third quarter and after a couple of ugly stretches in the first five minutes of the second half, the Pacers were down with little hope of rising up.

Turnovers and a defense offering friendly looks to the host Bucks, made even a run in the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to seven, a struggle.

The Pacers return home with the Bulls on the schedule Saturday, needing a heavy dose of mental and physical toughness to dig into the problem areas plaguing them in losses.
