The Indiana Pacers were on a five game losin’ streak comin’ into Saturday night’s game against the Chicago Bulls who were 11-5 since these two played last. Something had to give right? Here’s the X-factor for the Pacers. Victor Oladipo had been out for four of those games and he was comin’ back on Saturday night.

Well playas…the former Indiana University standout was chompin’ at the bit to lead them to a much needed win. Ole boy jumped out of the Big Body Chevy in what seemed like a Superman cape scorin’ 23 points in 23 minutes to help the Blue and Gold beat the brakes off of Chicago 125-86.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Victor Oladipo is the franchise and his impact has been immediate. The dun only played 23 minutes but his presence seemed to make everyone better. The ball moved extremely well as Indiana finished the night with 24 assists as a team.

Think about it bruh, he only played for 23 minutes and didn’t break a sweat in the fourth quarter. As a matter of fact, none of the starters played in the final quarter.

Can we say All-Star? Yes we can playboy!! Victor Oladipo is a valued asset to this team and havin’ him out for four games told everybody and their baby’s momma that he was definitely the team leader and the engine that makes things go.

Not only did the ball move well but they shot the lights out of the gym as a team finishin’ the night shootin’ 56 percent from the field and 48 percent from behind the arc. Even cats comin’ out of the bushes put up crazy numbers. Domantas Sabonis finished with 22 points as T.J. Leaf surprised Big Momma with 15.

Starters Darren Collison and Myles Turner dropped off 13 apiece as Damien Wilkens, in for the injured Bajon Bogdanovic, hit ‘um up for 11.

So whatever the Pacers have to do to keep Victor Oladipo in the line up they had better get to doin’ it. Roll that dun up in bubble wrap and carry him home or whatever is necessary to keep him healthy. In my Nike voice, Just do it. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) Ole boy: noun – the person that I’m currently talkin’ about.

3) Comin’ out of the bushes: verb phrase – to come off of the bench

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
