The Indiana Pacers just keep going about their business.
Winning and winning handily.
If you don’t think the Pacers are the best team in the NBA, you don’t know what you’re talking about. If anything, they’re playing the best right now. Which is all that matters…right now.
Anyways, on Monday night, they proved themselves once again by pounding the Grizzlies 95-79 — and it wasn’t that close.
Turns out, the Pacers frontcourt duo (David West/Roy Hibbert) completely overwhelmed the Grizzlies interior defense. They dominated the boards 45-32 and rejected the Grizzlies a combined nine times as a team.
Paul George did his usually Paul George thing, scoring 23 points and grabbing seven boards. In assistance was Lance Stephenson, who turned in his first career triple-double tallying 13 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 12 assists on the night. The Grizzlies were led by Marc Gasol with 15 points and Zach Randolph with 12 in the losing effort.
Grizzlies forward Quincy Poindexter left in the second quarter and was diagnosed with a fractured nose. He did not return. That pretty much was Memphis’ night in a nutshell.
For good measure, here’s George throwing down on a fastbreak in the third quarter.
The Pacers are here, people. And they aren’t going anywhere. Recognize.
