Milwaukee
Indiana

[INDIANA] — The Indiana Pacers played host to the Milwaukee Bucks last night and the homeside took care of business. A 104-89 win has the Pacers and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Indiana's record up to 39-40 on the season, while the loss drags Milwaukee's down to 40-39. 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, Giannis Antetokounmpo's 25 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 blocks and 0 steals in 35 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Antetokounmpo, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Pacers. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Milwaukee back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Pacers in the victory was Paul George and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Antetokounmpo, he did help his club walk away with the victory. George posted 23 points, 10 rebounds and 1 assists in the win.

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 Bucks, 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 Orlando Magic while the visiting Bucks will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers.
