The Indiana Pacers appeared to have momentum heading into their showdown with the Denver Nuggets at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, so it's disappointing to see them crumple down the stretch and hand the Nuggets a 92-89 victory. I had hoped for JaVale McGee to score some baskets for the Pacers but instead he dominated Roy Hibbert, who was kept to 10 and 9 on 3-10 shooting (though that's becoming the norm for Roy these days). Wasn't a whole lot to dislike apart from the loss and the stinky bench (again). Paul George led the way again with 22 points in yet another encouraging sign that he is taking a step forward in his game, while David West continued to be beast with 18 and 11. The reserves only gave the Pacers 12 points, and 9 of those came from Sam Young of all people. Whatever. Next game, the Thunder in Oklahoma City. Could get ugly.
