We're alive, yay!
The Indiana Pacers celebrated the passing of the Mayan doomsday prophecy by beating the Cavs in Cleveland, 99-89.
Not much to say except that I thought the Cavs were going to be more competitive than they were, having previously been routed by the Pacers in Indiana not that long ago. But then again, I didn't expect them to be missing NBA rebounding leader Anderson Varejao, who would have undoubtedly given Roy Hibbert fits. Instead, Hibbert finished with a team-high 18 points to go with 6 rebounds and 2 blocks.
All five starters finished in double figures plus Gerald Green, who followed up his season high against the Jazz with 14, including a ridiculous in-traffic slam that almost deserved the taunting technical that followed it.
As a team, the Pacers shot 48.8%, which is really really good for them.
Right now, 15-12 is not a bad place to be.
