On Tuesday, the Indiana Pacers will wrap up a week-long road trip, that saw them playing four straight games on the road in seven days. The Pacers played well, winning two of three games during their California road trip. They will look to finish the streak strong, as they travel to play the Chicago Bulls.
The Pacers have had a few days to rest at home, after returning from the West coast. The three games in California have shown this young team looking very positive in spurts. They have also stumbled a bit during the road trip, allowing over 100 points in a loss on Saturday, and putting up only 79 points in a win last Wednesday.
Starting point guard George Hill put up a last second-game winning shot in that game to steal the win away from the Los Angeles Lakers. Starting power forward David West dominated in a win on Friday night, scoring 31 points and collecting 11 rebounds. Hill also shined in Friday’s game against the Sacramento Kings, by putting up 25 points, eight assists, and six rebounds of his own in the 97-92 victory.
After the game in Chicago on Tuesday, the Pacers will play four of their next five games at home in Bankers Life Fieldhouse. After stumbling early, and playing down to lesser teams, the Pacers continued to fight, and have shown the promise and the prowess to stay in contention from the start to the finish of big games at home and on the road. Regardless of the outcome of Tuesday’s game, these Indiana Pacers have already proven themselves to be road warriors.
