Jane Velez-Mitchell, the TV journalist, once said, “Real life is often sloppy, tragic, ugly, embarrassing, unglamorous, and not made for TV.” Karl Lagerfeld broke it down like this, “I don’t want to look sloppy, because then I feel sloppy.” Then Dick Cavett, the television personality, put it where he goats could get it when he spit, “Sloppy language leads to sloppy thought, and sloppy thought to sloppy legislation.”
Well playas…and sloppy ball handin’ leads to turnovers! The Indiana Pacers and the Phoenix Suns actually played a professional basketball game on Wednesday night but if you paid attention to the stat line of turnovers you wouldn’t know it. There were 39 in all as the Pacers got out of the joint with a 109-94 win on the road.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Even with 18 turnovers the Pacers were able to take care of business enough to win their fourth game out of six to look like they are actually startin’ to turn the corner.
Paul George led Indiana with 25 points and 13 rebounds pushin’ the funky SUV through the desert. Myles Turner road shotgun with 20 points as Jeff Teague dropped off 19 points and 11 dimes from the back seat. Big Al Jefferson came out of the bushes on a boy with 15 points and 6 rebounds as Rodney Stuckey followed with 12. As a team they shot 45 percent from the field.
Boyz had to have a short memory to get over the dull defensive showin’ in Oakland earlier this week when Klay hit ‘um up for 60 in 29 minutes. Nate was like, “It wasn’t a good film to watch. We talked about that, but we do have to move on.” And move on they did. Stop me when I start lyin’!
