David West Needs More Help From Indiana Pacers Teammates

+Read full article

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

David West and his Indiana Pacers teammates have been around long enough to realize the best way to recover from a disappointing loss is with some rewarding wins.

West continues to have a sparkling season and had a fine effort against the Miami Heat in Sunday’s 105-91 loss to the defending NBA champions. West was 7-of-10 from the floor and 10-of-11 from the free-throw line while grabbing five rebounds and dishing out three assists and recording four steals. He only had one turnover and totaled 24 points. His effort was worthy of a winning team’s performance but some of his teammates were not able to get into the act.

All West can do it is what he’s been doing all year: score, rebound and get his teammates involved in the game more effectively. It’s the last factor with which West couldn’t really help the Pacers since being a dominant force in the NBA means having a dominant team. With West, the Pacers definitely have a good start. He’s having a magnificent season, averaging 17.5 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game and shooting 49.2 percent from the floor. His career mark is 16.1 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists and his career field goal shooting percentage is 49.2 in shooting.

By all standards, West is having a remarkable season. He would love going after an NBA title but the Pacers would have to get past Miami. As was demonstrated in Sunday’s loss to the Heat, West just needs to have his other teammates join the fun in every game, with no exceptions.
