Heat Fall to Pacers 87-77 As Rebounding Woes Continue
Of course, the Pacers don't win without some impressive performances in their own right. (*VOMITCOUGHVOMITFART*) Burgeoning star, Paul George, benefited from an offseason where he trained with King James, scoring 29 points on 12-of-29 shooting and 4 three pointers. Lance Stephenson -- in the role of 2012-2013 Random Scrub Heat Killer for this game -- added 13 points including 3-of-4 from 3-point land. David West (maybe the worst offender in the NBA of using his other hand to push off defenders when he has the ball) scored 14 points. The Pacers also got big minutes and help from their bench, especially during their second quarter run with 25 points off the bench against Miami's 11. Jesus, that team is annoying as Hell.
For the Heat, King James Cobradick Django scored 22 points to continue his streak of roughly 13,837 games with 20+ points but was 1-of-4 from the stripe so expect ESPN to implode over the next three days. Chris Bosh had a pedestrian 14 points but his paltry five rebounds were horrendous.
Meh. Probably nothin' to worry about just yet. Let's just go to the beach, bro!
The Miami Heat continue their road trip on to Portland on Thursday night. Tipoff is at 10:30 p.m.
