Phoenix, AZ - The Phoenix Suns were able to defeat the Indiana Pacers this evening by a final score of 124-100. Phoenix used 11 threes and 54.2% shooting from the field to get a statement win over the best team (record-wise) in the NBA. Indiana’s turnover issues were on full display this evening and their defense was poor to say the very least. Paul George was the only Indiana Pacer that showed up to play consistent offense, scoring 26 points on 10-19 shooting. He has been playing excellent basketball for the last couple of weeks and despite the loss turned in a very nice game. George Hill did score 16 points, but was unable to do anything on the defensive side of the basketball against Goran Dragic. David West was the only other Pacer in double digits with 13 points on 6-11 shooting. The Phoenix Suns were led by former Pacer Gerald Green this evening with 23 points. He shot 6-13 from the field, including 3-5 from behind the three-point arc and 8-10 from the foul line. Goran Dragic also had a big game for the Suns with 21 points and was very pesky on defense as well. Markieff Morris came off the bench to put up 20 points himself on 8-14 shooting. P.J. Tucker (13), Miles Plumlee (11), and Channing Frye (10) all scored in double figures for the Suns tonight. Needless to say, the Suns dominated the Pacers in every aspect of the game this evening. They showed that they are a very underrated team and are a legitimate team to watch in the Western Conference. It will be interesting to see how they are able to finish the season up, but they certainly look good. The Pacers have to find a way to limit their turnovers, and they had 20 more tonight. If they want to beat teams like the Miami Heat or Oklahoma City Thunder in a seven game series, those turnovers will have to be cut in half.
