Washington
Indiana

[INDIANA] — The Indiana Pacers played host to the Washington Wizards last night but couldn't manage to leave much of an impact, failing to keep up with their visiting rivals and eventually succumbing in a 105-111 defeat. The loss bumps Indiana's record down to 15-18 on the season, while the victory gives Washington a 15-16 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Pacers would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

An impressive performance from John Wall led all players in the contest and his 36 points, 11 rebounds, 9 assists, 0 blocks and 2 steals in 38 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Most importantly, the Wizards managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Wall keeps producing at this rate and Washington keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though Indiana didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, Paul George did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 34 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

From a personal standpoint, Paul George made his presence felt from beyond the arc, toying with defenders all night long and connecting on an impressive 6 bombs. Putting a stop to any NBA calibre talent is no easy task, but even more so when they're red-hot from beyond three-point range.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Pacers can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though Indiana wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Chicago Bulls. The Wizards, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the .
