[INDIANA] — The Indiana Pacers played host to the Memphis Grizzlies last night and the Pacers did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 102-92 victory. The win bumps Indiana's record up to 30-28 on the season, while the loss drags Memphis's down to 34-25. Though a win's a win and Pacers fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.
While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Myles Turner's 12 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks and 3 steals in 34 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Ask anybody, however - Turner included - and the most important part is that the Pacers walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.
Though not quite able to steal the show, C.J. Miles did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Grizzlies. Miles's 17 points, 4 rebounds and 1 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.
Indiana's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Grizzlies, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Pacers will settle for the upper hand in this one.
Up next for the reeling Pacers will be a date with the while the visiting Grizzlies will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Phoenix Suns.
Turner 36.0 FP
Miles 33.5 FP
Allen 33.0 FP
