Haven’t heard much from the Pacers lately. They lost five in a row that straddled the New Year but have since righted the ship. Indy has won four of five, including the first game of its current five-game road trip against Phoenix.
Three different Suns led the game in points, rebounds and assists but the Pacers came away with a lopsided 23-point win. Seven Pacers scored double-digits points but none had more than 20. Lance Stephenson also chipped in nine points, five assists, four rebounds and five personal fouls in 20 minutes of play.
Stephenson has made the difference for the Pacers as a sixth man. He certainly grabs a lot of attention but, compared to other athletes and personalities in today’s world of seeking public attention, I’m not sure Stephenson’s efforts are truly geared toward getting notoriety as much as they are toward results on the court. There is a certain amount of attention-seeking but a lot of what he does is to bother opponents, and it works.
Stephenson harassed LeBron James in Indiana’s second-to-last game, enough to frustrate James into shoving him and earning a technical foul. His efforts helped Indiana overcome a 20-point deficit. His +17 led the game. He’s just one of those guys, where his style either works or doesn’t. As long as it continues to work in Indiana, he will play a big role.
Donovan Mitchell scored 35 points against the Hornets over the weekend but Utah still lost big. Thabo Sefalosha also hurt his knee and got season-ending surgery following the game.
Utah’s already got depth issues so Sefalosha’s injury is only going to pile it on. If Mitchell ever does hit a rookie wall in the next couple months, Utah is really going to be done.
A slide down the stretch might not be a bad thing for Utah, which is quickly fading from any shot at the eight-seed and has the chance to pass a couple of teams in the draft lottery standings if they get on a serious losing streak. Mitchell needs another wing on the perimeter and it’s becoming more and more evident that Rodney Hood isn’t the guy.
Rudy Gobert practiced the other day but is still a week away from returning. Gobert just hasn’t been able to stay healthy this season, suffering through two long injuries for the lowly Jazz.
