Paul George takes over as Pacers survive young Lakers! “Swag”

"I got this playa!"

Mark Twain once said, “All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.” Norman Vincent Peale, the minister and author, pulled up in his grand daddy’s whip and shouted, “Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” Then Broadway Joe Namath threw his mink coat on the ground and spit, “When you have confidence, you can have a lot of fun. And when you have fun, you can do amazing things.”

Well playas…Paul George had all the confidence in the world as he helped the Indiana Pacers put away the Los Angeles Lakers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday night, 115-108. Ole boy scored the Pacers final 12 points down the stretch to keep the dull Lakers from sneakin’ into town, climbin’ into Big Momma’s window and stealin’ a piece of sweet potato pie.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! These duns just kept hangin’ around all night bruh! At one point durin’ the first quarter the Pacers were shootin’ 50 percent from the field and 57 percent from behind the arc and the Lakers wouldn’t go away. They actually finished the game shootin’ 47 percent from the field and 35 percent from 3 and barely got out of there alive. The Lakers were like nats at a backyard BBQ at lil’ Miss Ruthie’s house in the projects. The more they kept swattin’ them away the more they kept comin’ back.

At the break it seemed as though they had these boyz on the ropes bleedin’ from the mouth with a 62-51 lead but Lou Williams and Co. bum rushed a boy as soon as the whistle blew to start the third quarter.

The problem is, you can’t let a boy hang around because if you do, they’ll find a way to win. With 1:54 left Julius Randle dunked to put the Lakers up 108-107. Problem bruh!

Luckily for the Pacers, Paul George had been playin’ with crazy swag all night and completely took over. He’d already scored the previous 4 points and then he rattled off the next 8 on a boy to finish with 30 points, 7 rebounds and 4 steals. Monta Ellis jumped out of the ride with 17! CJ Miles hit a boy off with 16 as Thaddeus Young topped the joint off with 14.

But what I can’t understand is why is Ron Artest, excuse me, Metta World Peace up in the joint robbin’ boyz without a ski mask on. When that dun checked in I thought I’d seen a ghost. This cat is still gettin’ a check wearin’ smedium shorts lookin’ like he’s about to pull a muscle in those joints and runnin’ up and down the floor wishin’ a boy would throw a beer at him.

Nate has crazy confidence in his team at this point in the season even with the 2 consecutive losses over the weekend and I’m excited to see what this team will develop into. Stop me when I start lyin’!
