See, this is what I love about the Pacers when they’re at home: they sometimes seem unstoppable, no matter what the opponent is. Seriously. Just like the Raptors game, the Pacers fought from more than 20 points down and made a stellar comeback to win. This time against tougher team: the Suns.
Danny Granger notched 33 points along with Mike Dunleavy, who had a season-high of 30. It’s very surprising to me. I mean, Indy is like the Nets on the road and then the Lakers at home. Or put it this way: they suck on the road, unstoppable at home. Earl Watson is no longer a joke now, because he has been looking pretty good lately. He had 14 points and nine assists in this one.
The Pacers looked good entering the fourth. Only leading by one entering it, the Pacers led 118-111 with about two minutes to play. Nash then hit a three to respond, but Granger quickly reacted with a jumper. The game was sealed when Nash missed a shot and then Dunleavy had two free throws, both in. 122-114, game over.
Oh, but Watson was a bit of The Joker today. He made Nash have stitches on his mouth, after elbowing him in the lip in the first quarter. Ouch. Don’t worry Joker, it’s okay. I forgive you (don’t know about the others…).
The Pacers look at a win against the Nets this Friday. There’ll be a postgame show at 10:30 or something like that for the night. Also, catch me on Sunday at 11PM as I might be on the Celtics Late Night Show. The Pacers have been on a roll lately, now. Let’s continue it.
We’re looking for a win #3 straight at New Jersey, which is sad for the Nets, who only have three wins so far this season!
