The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the famous four-act play written in 1886 seems to be the Indiana Pacers new theme. Since mid-February they’ve become as predictable as possible winnin’ and losin’ every other game. If you were a bettin’ man you wouldn’t have lost your shirt or sneakers puttin’ the mortgage on Boston Wednesday night. Indiana went to the Garden, laid out on the floor and took a nap for four quarters losin’ 109-100 to the Celtics.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Everybody didn’t take a nap bruh because Paul George and the homie, Jeff Teague, showed up for work and put it in. However, the rest of the cast and crew forgot that it was a work day and seemed to sleep in.

Paul George carried the load finishin’ with 37 points as Jeff Teague got off of the bus stompin’ like a big dawg with 25 points and 6 assists. The only problem was, nobody else scored in double figures and as a team they only got 15 points out of the bushes!!! ON THE ROAD!!!

You can’t win ball games playin’ with two cats, especially on the road bruh. They’re 11-25 away from home. With the loss at Boston this would make the 15th game where the Pacers have alternated wins and losses this season. That’s NUTS!!!

With the season wrappin’ up and boyz bein’ in a tight race to even make the playoffs it’s become critical to figure out how to win consecutive games. They’re at the crib for the next three and they played well at home so this is their chance to make up some ground or at least hold on to it.

With the loss at Boston they’ve fallen down to the seventh spot in the East. So now they’re dangling like a participle. In my Puffy voice, “It’s real in the field” now. It’s literally a “Po Pimp” Do or Die situation!  “Do you Wanna Ride in the back seat of a Caddy and chop it up with Do or Die?” Stop me when I start lyin’!
