The Indiana Pacers rolled into D.C. on Friday night to play the red hot Washington Wizards led by the ridiculously talented John Wall. Boys went toe to toe with these cats but fell short 112-107 as Wall scored eight of Washington’s final 9 points on a boy.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Enterin’ this ball game the Wizards were No.2 in the league since January 1 at 15-5 only behind Golden State. The Pacers were No.4 at 13-5 durin’ that same time period. So you know that boyz were goin’ to get it in.
John Wall did is usual work finishin’ with 26 points and 14 assists while Markieff Morris held it down with 26 points and 10 rebounds. Bradley Beal jumped out of the ride with 20 for ole time sake.
The Pacers didn’t just pull up and talk crazy like a dun in a road rage situation. They actually got out of the ride and got it in. Paul George jumped out of the driver’s seat with 31 points! Kevin Seraphin came out of the bushes with 16 points and 7 rebounds that nobody saw comin’! Jeff Teague dropped off a solid 13 points and 9 dimes on a boy. Lavoy Allen, Myles Turner and Rodney Stuckey all finished with 10 points.
As a team the Pacers shot the ball well at 48 percent, shared the ball as well as they could with 29 assists just like the Wizards. Reboundin’ favored Washington 46-42 but was no big deal. The difference in the game was free throws bruh! The Pacers only attempted 15 total makin’ 13 of them. The Wizards got to the foul line 30 times makin’ 20. Oh and don’t let me forget, the Pacers couldn’t hit a 3 to save their lives. They shot a dismal 19 percent from downtown.
That’ll do it bruh! Low free throw attempts and not bein’ able to buy a bucket from behind the arc is a deal breaker. Especially when the Wizards knocked down 10 three point shots.
Think about it playa, Washington has won 18 of 19 ball games at the crib. Their only loss was to LeBron and Co. earlier this week in overtime. So to play these duns close at their crib is nothin’ to be ashamed of. Learn from the mistakes and move on. Stop me when I start lyin’!
Up next: Bucks tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse 7pm
