A night after superstars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbook handed their asses to them in Indiana, the Pacers suffered their second straight blowout defeat tonight at the hands of the lowly Washington Wizards, powered by their own superstar John Wall. Wall had 37 points, including 26 in a blistering first half, but it was the second half when the Wizards blew the game open en route to a 104-85 victory. Barring a collapse by the streaking Knicks, the Pacers look like they will have to settle for the East's third seed, which is really not that big of a deal right now considering they'd probably play the Derrick Rose-less Bulls or the Hawks in the first round. But if they do get through that round, and they absolutely should, the Pacers will have to start round two on the road. Anyway, Paul George is trending in the wrong direction at this end of the season. He had 2 points and zero FGs on eight attempts tonight. David West had 12, but it seems like he hasn't quite been the same since
