The Indiana Pacers swept the defending champions

  • Lady Warriors split SL games

Right now the Houston Rockets are the top seed of the west and many consider them the favorites, James Harden is looking like a lock for MVP and the Warriors have found another team that is nearly as a deadly shooting team as they are.

He finished with 21 points, seven assists, six rebounds and those three steals (franchise record of six straight games with at least three steals), but the numbers don't quite do him justice tonight.

BC-BKN-Warriors-Pacers, 1st Ld-Writethru, 788Pacers sweep season series vs Warriors with 126-106 rompAP Photo NAF102, NAF101, NAF104, SPANNAF112, NAF108, NAF109, NAF103, NAF105Eds: Pacers 126, Warriors 106. We cared. Over the last few games, we cared.They came out with a better strategy, being more aggressive than us. "Yeah, I'm embarrassed. I'm embarrassed".

"They played better basketball than us", Durant added.

Of course, it doesn't help that the Warriors are missing Stephen Curry (left knee), Patrick McCaw (spine), Omri Casspi (right ankle) and Andre Iguodala (left knee).

Pacers: Will try to end an eight-game road losing streak at Toronto on Friday. I'm embarrassed. I know this game doesn't mean anything in the seeding, but the playoffs start next week.

IN remains in fifth place in the Eastern Conference with the win but could still finish as high as third with a week remaining in the regular season.


Golden State was held to 44.6 percent shooting and 31 percent from range. It was an embarrassing effort.

However, Kevin Durant, who led the Warriors with 27 points, disagreed with Kerr's assessment.

"It's going to get us bull-tough and battle tested", IN forward Thaddeus Young said.

The win for the Pacers (47-32) keeps them in contention for a possible top-4 seed and home court advantage in Round One of the playoffs.

All-Star forward Kevin Durant was mired in a tough shooting night, only 8-of-23 from the floor and a woeful 2-of-10 from deep, but disagreed with his coach's notion that this team didn't seem to care about the result at hand.

"Maybe they are. Maybe that's what it is".

"We're the underdog in every matchup", Oladipo said. We got a lot more goals and a lot more things that we want to accomplish. "This year's minicamp is an opportunity for us to continue and expand the culture, brotherhood and camaraderie that has been built".
