Milwaukee is simply one of those teams the Pacers don't match up well against, primarily because of the quickness of their guards, Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis. As expected, the dynamic backcourt duo gave the Pacers all sorts of problems and combined for 55 points, with Jennings' 34 leading the way in their 98-93 win, their second of the season against Indiana. But it was former Pacer Mike Dunleavy that provided the spark the Bucks needed by returning from injury to score 17 points, including a four-point play and a big bucket down the stretch to hold the Pacers at bay. To be honest, it wasn't a horrible loss for the Pacers considering their careless turnovers (20!) and their problems with quick guards who can create their own shot off the dribble. Despite the crazy baskets Jennings was hitting (the Bucks would have been blown out if he was missing them), the Pacers were right there for the majority of the game and even had a chance to tie it with less than 30 seconds to go on a wide-open three from Paul George that missed off the side of the rim. George Hill led the way with 18 points and 5 rebounds, while Paul George continued his all-round play after winning player of the week with a 16, 10 and 5 stat line, though he did have 5 turnovers. David West struggled tonight and finished wit 12 points and 6 rebounds, but spent most of the night complaining to the refs about no-calls. Roy Hibbert and Lance Stephenson both returned from injury, with Hibbert putting up 8 and 10 in 28 minutes and Stephenson held to just 3 points. Ian Mahinmi was the best off the bench with 14 points and 5 rebounds. The 13-12 Pacers need another winning-streak to get as far away from 0.500 as possible, and they can start with the next game, at home againt the Jazz tomorrow.
