I know, I know. A win is a win. That's what we've been saying all season as the Pacers continue to struggle.
But at least it has been exciting to watch for fans who like their games to go down to the wire.
Once again, the Pacers needed to go all out to top a supposedly lottery team missing a key piece. On the back of Roy Hibbert's first career triple-double (10 points, 11 rebounds and a career high 11 blocks) and a career scoring night from Paul George (37 points, including 33 and a Reggie Miller record-breaking 9 three-pointers after half time), the Pacers somehow managed to squeeze by a New Orleans Hornets team missing no. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis in OT, 115-107. With the victory, the Pacers earned their first winning streak of the season and improved with 6-7, including a 4-1 record at home.
For the majority of the night, it looked like another one of those games, where an inferior opponent would out-execute and out-hustle the Pacers to a win the Pacer...

And no, that’s not a typo...

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Reggie Miller never had a 3-point barrage quite like the one Paul George had Wednesday night.

While tomorrow will most likely be remembered for the stuffing you eat at Thanksgiving dinner, Wednesday night featured a nasty alley-oop stuff from Indiana Pacers forward Gerald Green.
Watch as Green skies for this alley-oop against the New Orleans Hornets:
