+Read full article

Both the Indiana Pacers and the Milwaukee Bucks came into their game in Wisconsin on Saturday playing for the third night in a row. Both teams played on Thursday and Friday as well, with varied results. Indiana won a 85-83 nail-biter against the Washington Wizards on Thursday, and lost a 113-111 nail-biter against the Phoenix Suns on Friday. The Bucks lost to the Boston Celtics, 100-91 Thursday, but came out with a big win over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday. The Bucks ran up 112 points, and won by 20 against the Hornets.

At home against the Pacers on Saturday, Milwaukee lost by 21.

The last six games in this series have all been decided by six points or less, but the Pacers blew up the score late on Saturday. The 125 points in Milwaukee was Indiana’s best offensive output this season. Indiana has scored over 100 points in six of their last nine games.

The Bucks held tight for a while, only trailing by nine at halftime. A 35-point third quarter helped the Indiana lead balloon to 16. George Hill led all scorers, with 24 points, coming off the Indiana bench. Hill came into the game with 3:30 remaining in the first quarter, and played for just over three more minutes than starting point guard Darren Collison. George Hill has scored in double figures seven times in the last nine games.

Saturday’s game was the first of three meetings between these Central Division rivals. Milwaukee (22-26) is fighting with Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks (24-25) for the bottom seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. Indiana (28-19) is in a tight race at the middle of the playoff pack with the Atlanta Hawks (29-20) and Philadelphia 76ers (27-21).
