We definitely made that harder than it needed to be but it’s a good win regardless.

Mathurin is a sore loser.

That's not the first time Mathurin's hunted a somewhat meaningless steal and shot attempt after the game has been decided.

Nice to see Fultz make free throws with no issue.

I'm going to say our best was GH, then Paolo, then Franz.

Love Mathurin the player, hate the personality. That was my assessment pre-draft and looks like he still has that ‘edge’ to him that isn’t endearing.

Lucky that had the first quarter they did. If not, this would have been an L. But they gutted it out and won. They next 3-4 are gonna be tough. But I would do anything to beat Miami on Friday.

We made it tougher than it needed to be... I'll say this.... Paolo gets a good whistle but he doesn't get a mathurin whistle...

Well, that was a harder than I would've liked it to be, credit to the Pacers (and the refs) for keeping on fighting on the second night of a back to back.

The team still has enough to work on, but at least they kept up just enough pressure throughout the game to hold the lead.

Yeah we came out swinging as if we were playing a g league team but then the pacers woke up, overall good game though very entertaining.

11 pages of complaining in a game we win. I love you all.

I don't think so, yes bamba is physically more athletic but its all for nothing. Bamba can block shots but Wagner takes charges, both can shoot 3's but Wagner drives to the basket unlike bamba and sets better screens. Bamba plays to make a check and nothing more where as Wagner plays like his rent depends on it.

Holy s***, I’m waiting for Nick Anderson to say “and boom goes the dynamite”.

What a train wreck. Poor guy can’t get a single thought from his brain to his mouth tonight.

Cheering for the Rockets to handle the Wizards and Kings to beat Raptors tonight.
