Pacers Play Three Good Quarters, Lose 94-90 to Bucks

By brianneese

The Milwaukee Bucks picked up the win over the Indiana Pacers, winning 94-90 in Indianapolis on Friday night.

John Salmons played well for Milwaukee, leading all scorers with 22 points.  Luc Richard Mbah a Moute also had a good game with 10 points and 15 rebounds.

The Pacers had four starters in double figures in terms of scoring.  Roy Hibbert posted a great line with 14 points, 12 rebounds, six blocks, and four assists.

Leading by six points after three quarters, the Pacers were outscored 24-14 in the fourth quarter.  Shots stopped falling for the Pacers which led for another unfortunate loss, similar to the opening game when the Pacers had a great shot at beating the Spurs.

Both teams didn’t shoot particularly well: the Pacers at 38.7% and the Bucks at 38.6%. 

The Pacers have lost a couple of games now in the fourth quarter and are experiencing the highs and lows of their youth (see winning easily over the Sixers and then getting routed by them the next game). 

Next for the Pacers are the Denver Nuggets – the Pacers host them on Tuesday at 7:00 PM EST.
