Pacers step up as Paul George leaves his game at baggage claim! “Hood Protocol”

"This joint ain't workin' tonight bruh! Thanks for lookin' out fellas!"

Many times cats from the suburbs will ask boyz from the ghetto why they travel in crews? Why is it that you find it necessary to pull up with a car full of hard legs instead of rollin’ by yourself? Well playas…the Indiana Pacers answered that question with CAPITAL letters down in Orlando on Wednesday night. Paul George obviously left his game at baggage claim so his homeboys loaned him theirs led by C.J. Miles as they knocked off the Orlando Magic 98-88.

After scorin’ at least 30 points in their last four games. PG13 pulled out a wet pack of firecrackers and a smoke bomb and couldn’t scare a nervous chicken. That dun finished the night with 8 points (one point in the second half), shootin’ 3 of 14 from the field and he turned the rock over 5 times. However, because he followed hood protocol and pulled up with an entire crew that lives by the code of the streets, “Never let ya homeboy down when he needs you!,” the Pacers were able to get out of the joint alive.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Once boyz figured out that PG was strugglin’ they took over. CJ Miles, who was inserted into the startin’ lineup five games ago, jumped into the driver seat and went to work scorin’ a team high 16 points. Glenn Robinson, the dun that Miles replaced in the startin’ lineup, came out of the bushes on a boy with 14 points and 7 rebounds. Jeff Teague kept his usual seat ridin’ shotgun as he dropped off 13 points and threw 9 dimes out of the window into oncomin’ traffic. Thaddeus Young wasn’t playin’ with a boy finishin’ with 12 and 5 as Myles Turner came through with a solid 11. Even Al Jefferson jumped out of the birthday cake with 10 and 7 rebounds.

Everybody seemed to understand the seriousness of steppin’ up once PG’s firecrackers got wet. As a team they finished with 25 assists!!! Wheredeydodatat? They shot darn near 48 percent from the field and 45 percent from behind the arc. At the charity stripe they were darn near 89 percent. My point here is this bruh. When you’re rollin’ with some real G’s that understand hood protocol to watch a boy’z back at all times, you can survive out here in these streets when your weapon isn’t workin’. Stop me when I start lyin’!
