In other NBA scores on Wednesday night, the Indiana Pacers’ struggles in Atlanta continued, after losing 97-87 to the Hawks.
“Guys didn’t have a lot of pop to start the game,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. “Shots weren’t falling, catches were a step slow in a lot of areas.
“But I’m proud of our guys for battling back in the second half, making it a game.”
“This is definitely a winnable game for us, but it’s a tough stretch, four out of five, travel situations that we had,” added Paul George, who led Indiana with 28 points.
“It’s not an excuse, but it’s nothing to be down about at this point.”
