Re: Pacers Balling...
The Pacers have been at or near the top of the league in defense all season, but you wouldn't have known that from Wednesday's performance.
The Trail Blazers shot 56 percent from the field. Forward LaMarcus Aldridge led all five Portland starters in double figures with 27 points. J.J. Hickson added 14 points and 13 rebounds.
Swingman Paul George, who dealt with foul trouble, led the Pacers with 22 points. David West added 21 points, but the Pacers only shot 37 percent from the field.
