Familiarity unfolded for the Indiana Pacers, who suffered yet another loss to the Detroit Pistons to end their season series 3-1. The Pacers, plagued by a slow start, fell completely flat in the first half, requiring a third quarter push to put them into the lead heading into the fourth.
The Pacers outscored Detroit 31-16 in the third, but it wasn’t enough to keep the Pistons at bay, allowing 37 points in the fourth to fall 108-101. The Pistons completed just their second fourth quarter comeback of the season, both against the Pacers. Indiana was waxed on the glass 51-33, helping aid the loss, dropping them to 2-2 on their five game road trip.
T.J. Warren did his best to salvage a Pacers win, scoring 26 points. Malcolm Brogdon put in 21 himself, but appeared to hurt his wrist at the end of the game. The bench was outscored 33-20, dropping them to 14-8 on the season. The Pacers wrap up their road trip tomorrow night against the New York Knicks.
