Indiana Pacers Make Statement To End 11-Game Skid vs. San Antonio Spurs

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The Indiana Pacers faced a San Antonio Spurs team on Saturday night against whom they’ve lost too many games in the past 10 years or so, and ended that skid with a 111-100 win. San Antonio had beaten Indiana 11 straight times, and the Pacers haven’t beaten the Spurs at home since 2002.

Indiana’s five-game West coast road trip was a good test for a team that has been very successful through the first quarter of the season, and although they fell short to a very strong Portland Trail Blazers team, a win over the Spurs really shows this team is what they’re hyped up to be and can hang with the big dogs of the NBA.

The Pacers were off to a horrible start and found themselves down 13 early on in the second quarter, but had a tremendous rest of the second and third quarter, outscoring the Spurs 67-37 to near a 30-point lead. However, when Indiana decided to rest their starters and put the bench on the floor in the middle of the fourth, the deep San Antonio bench rallied to as close as nine. Indiana’s lead was just too much to overcome though, and the Pacers ended up winning by 11.

Although Indiana had a very sloppy fourth quarter, an 11-point win in San Antonio is very impressive for a team that has struggled there for so long. They can celebrate tonight, but will face the Oklahoma City Thunder, who are the only other undefeated team at home in the league aside from the Pacers, tomorrow.
