I'm not gonna bother with a long recap. Right now, the Indiana Pacers are simply no match for the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs are just smoother, more co-ordinated, more efficient and better at both ends of the floor right now, and it showed in the 101-79 drubbing they gave to the Pacers on Tuesday.None of the Pacers played well, but that's probably because the Spurs didn't let them. It was ugly for the blue and gold for the majority of the night, save for maybe a short stretch before the end of the first half when they brought a 20 point deficit back down to 9. Roy Hibbert was 1-7 with 2 points and 3 turnovers in 27 minutes. The 179-year-old Tim Duncan? 14 points and 11 rebounds to go with 3 steals and 3 blocks in 26 minutes.It was a much needed wake up call for the Pacers because even though they were 2-1 to start the season (before this loss) they were playing pretty crappy basketball. Losing Danny Granger indefinitely is no excuse. They need to get their act together soon, and they might as well start with their next game on Thursday in Atlanta.
