Pacers vs Hornets Quarter 4

The Hornets are shooting a poor 25% from beyond the arc. They have attempted 36 3-pointers.

Whereas, the Pacers are shooting a healthy 45.2% from downtown.

Pacers have led the entire night and are cruising to a play-in win – advancing to play at Boston or D.C. on Thursday.

Up 108-78 after 3, Bjorkgren needs to consider sitting guys like Sabonis and Brogdon in the 4th. Sabonis needs 1 ast for a triple-double (14-21-9).

The Hornets have been poor throughout this matchup

Aaron Holiday enters the game for Justin Holiday, Goga Bitadze enters the game for Domantas Sabonis, Terry Rozier enters the game for Malik Monk, Jalen McDaniels enters the game for Devonte’ Graham.

Pacers vs Hornets Quarter 3

Oshae Brissett makes a 27-foot three point jumper (Domantas Sabonis assists)

Just an embarrassing showing from the Hornets. It’s a 27-point game two minutes into the second half. They haven’t been sharp at all.

Pacers vs Hornets Quarter 2

Pacers with a dominant first half. They shot 55% and lead the Hornets 69-45. Made 7 of their 10 3s in the 1Q.

McDermott already has 20pts. Brogdon, playing in his first game this month, has 13. Cody Zeller with 10pts.

Rebounding had been an issue against the Hornets — and the Pacers are +9, and allowed just 2 second-chance points while scoring 10 themselves. They won the effort plays and rose to the occasion for the first 24mins.

Sabonis is fine, but has been frustrated by the lack of calls on the last few possessions. Nate Bjorkgren had a long conversation with an official during the timeout.

Sabonis has 2pts, Brogdon with 5. Four of their top six players out — and the Pacers are cruising. Up 19 mid-2Q.

They’re shooting 56% and have outscored the Hornets by 15 from beyond the arc.

That was one of the better quarters of the season from the Pacers. High energy, shots were falling and they won the boards.

They’re up 40-24 on the Hornets, getting 16pts from McDermott. Bjorkgren has played nine already.

Pacers vs Hornets Quarter 1

Great ball movement from the Pacers early with 10a on 13 FGs. Hornets, who want teams to shoot the 3, have switched to a 2-3 zone.

Pacers with as good of a start as they could have hoped. 20-7 thanks to sharp shooting from outside: 5 for 6.

McDermott (11) has outscored the Hornets (7) by himself.
