Key Observations from the Indiana Pacers’ Weekend Split

On Friday night the Indiana Pacers were looking to wrap up a solid week at home. After their record third-quarter performance against the Denver Nuggets earlier in the week, they welcomed to Conseco Fieldhouse the Houston Rockets, who were clearly better than their 1-4 record.

The Rockets were without Aaron Brooks and Yao Ming, but former Indiana Pacer Brad Miller led the charge for the Rockets, as they defeated the Pacers. Yao had suffered a sprained ankle earlier in the week and would be out for the next week, at least. I was really looking forward to the matchup of Ming and Roy Hibbert on the inside, but we will have to wait until later in the season.

On Saturday night the team made the short trip to Cleveland to face the rebuilding Cavaliers. After a close first half, the Pacers pulled away late, evening up their record at 4-4. Danny Granger erupted with his highest point total of the season, putting in 34 points for the Blue and Gold.

Here are some of the observations I have made about the team over the past few days:
