Indiana Pacers Sweep Season Series Against the Washington Wizards

+Read full article

Coming into their second game in two nights, and their third stretch of back-to-back games in the last seven days, the Indiana Pacers could have been primed to drop a trap game against the Washington Wizards. Traveling to Washington directly after a hard fought comeback victory at home against the New York Knicks the night before, the Pacers started strong early.

Indiana hit their first five shots, on the way to a 37-point first quarter. Danny Granger carried over from a big performance from the night before, by scoring 13 of his team-leading 20 points in the first twelve minutes of the game. The Pacers followed up the high-scoring first quarter with a lackluster 15 points in the second quarter, which allowed Washington to hang around going into the half. Indiana bounced back with strong bench play in the third quarter, scoring 34 points, and taking a 12 point lead into the last quarter of the game. When it was all said and done, Indiana held off the Wizards, winning by a score of 109-96. The win was Indiana’s third in a row, and fourth straight game where they had scored over 100 points.

All 13 of Indiana’s players saw time on the court during the game, with 10 of those players scoring. The Wizards had only nine players dressed and ready to play. As the game time mounted up, Washington obviously wound down, and Indiana took advantage. The Pacers beat the Wizards for the third time in the last month, and swept the season series. Indiana is currently third in the Eastern Conference playoff standings.
