Pacers blast Detroit behind Paul George’s MONSTER third quarter! Bootin’ Up”

"Y'all sure you want this bruh?"

After gettin’ out of the gate slow in Charlotte on Monday night and gettin’ blasted. The Indiana Pacers weren’t tryin’ to repeat that foolishness on Wednesday night in front of an ESPN national television audience when the dull Detroit Pistons came rollin’ into town. They had already beaten these duns three times so makin’ it a fourth didn’t seem to be a problem.

The Pacers jumped on these boyz from the openin’ tip and never looked back beatin’ the brakes off of them 115-98 led by PG13’s 21 points and 8 rebounds! He scored 13 of his 21 points in the third quarter!! Then he and the rest of the starters sat down and watched the joint in the fourth.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! This was one of their better all around performances this season bruh! As a team they shot the lights out of the joint shootin’ 50 percent from the field and darn near 48 percent from behind the arc. They only committed 5 turnovers and threw 27 dimes to keep boyz honest.

Even though Thaddeus Young is still dealin’ with the wrist issue he balled out scorin’ 18 points and grabbin’ 8 rebounds. C.J. Miles came out of the back seat on a boy with 15 as Monta Ellis came out of the bushes with 12! Jeff Teague held it down with 10 points and 5 assists.

Back to PG for a minute bruh! Stan Van Gundy and Co. have no answer for him. In the previous three games against the Pistons ole boy has averaged 26 points per game on them and he popped them for 21 in this one. I know he’d like to play them weekly. The Pacers only trailed once in this ball game and it was for only for 22 seconds. Just enough time for a boy to spill his drink.

Because it’s the final leg of the regular season everybody and their baby’s momma are keepin’ their eyes on the playoff standings. The Pacers still sit just above the Pistons in the sixth spot so it’s imperative that boyz boot up.

If they’re goin’ to make the playoffs they’ll continue to NEED a heavy dose of  PG13 down the stretch. Stop me when I stop lyin’!
