2013-14 Pacers replay...another shot at the Finals.
Permalink  
 


I recently got the new 13-14 SOM NBA cards, and I found out that the Indiana Pacers will have a great team, with a 3-rated scorer (Paul George), a 2-rated scorer (Evan Turner), 2 players with 10+ rebound ratings (LG Lance Stephenson and RF Paul George) and FOUR players who don't have a rating in the shot-good column of their shot results card (I am playing the basic version of the cards and dice season).   This all added up to a 56-26 season and the best record in the Eastern Conference, but they were pushed to the brink by a #8 seed (Atlanta), then were given a hard time by an up-and-coming Washington team, and then they succumbed to the Miami Heat in the East Finals in six games.  But, how will my Pacers do in this replay?  How will they get a crack at the NBA Finals when Roy Hibbert has a 1 offensive/0 defensive rebound rate?  How will newcomers Luis Scola, Evan Turner, C.J. Watson and Rasual Butler help the team?  We will find out in this replay, which begins with the season opener against the Orlando Magic on October 29th at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

 

October 29th - at Bankers Life Fieldhouse - Game 1

Indiana (1-0)116, Orlando 94

West 17-7-2

Stephenson 18-4-8

Hill 11-4-4

George 16-10-5

Hibbert 12-5-1

Scola 14-9-0

Turner 16-0-1

Watson 10-0-2

Butler 2-5-2

Fitzpatrick 0-6-2.

Magic leaders:

points - Afflalo, 29

rebounds - Vucevic, 18

assists - Nelson, 11

Eight different Pacers were in double figures as Indiana beat the Orlando Magic by 22, led by Lance Stephenson with 18/4/8 and Paul George with 16/10/5.  It was all blue and gold from the opening tip as they dominated the game throughout, even though Roy Hibbert was dominated by Orlando's Nikolai Vucevic, who had a game-high 18 boards. Arron Afflalo led all scorers with 29 points.

The Pacers' next game is on October 30th when they take on the New Orleans Pelicans at Smoothie King Center.

October 30th - at Smoothie King Center - Game 2
Indiana (2-0) 116, New Orleans 105

It was a battle of the young guns as Anthony Davis had a career game with 45 points and 16 rebounds while Paul George racked up 42 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists, but it was George's Pacers who had the advantage, 116-105. Luis Scola came off the bench with a 16/12/2 game, as 3 players had 10+ rebounds, a big reason why they out-rebounded the Pelicans 54-42. George Hill added 17 points for Indiana while Lance Stephenson was 1 assist shy of a double-double, even though he scored only 4 points. Other than Davis' big night, other Pelicans had big games:

Anthony Morrow: 15 points
Tyreke Evans: 10 points/5 rebounds/5 assists
Jrue Holiday: 13 assists.

Indiana won despite turning the ball over 19 times, but their 53% field goal shooting kept them ahead.

Indiana Pacers
48-90 field goals, 8-12 3-pointers, 12-19 free throws, 54 rebounds, 29 assists, 18 fouls, 5 steals, 18 turnovers

Hibbert 9-5-2, George 42-7-4, Hill 17-4-2, Stephenson 4-10-9, West 5-2-2, Fitzpatrick 4-10-2, Butler 4-1-1, Watson 8-1-2, Turner 7-0-3, Scola 16-12-2, Allen 0-2-0.

New Orleans Pelicans
42-98 field goals, 4-10 3-pointers, 17-26 field goals, 42 rebounds, 31 assists, 18 fouls, 12 steals, 7 turnovers

Davis 45-16-2, Gordon 10-1-3, Holiday 5-4-13, Aminu 4-6-1, Smith 6-2-3, Ajinca 4-2-0, Morrow 15-2-1, Roberts 2-2-0, Evans 10-5-5, Stiemsma 4-2-3.

The Pacers play their first intra-divisional contest when they play the Cleveland Cavaliers November 2nd at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Paul George had 27 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists and 6 steals while David West tallied 17 points and Luis Scola chipped in 15 points as the Pacers snapped their 2-game losing streak. It was a close, low-scoring ball game between two of the best defensive teams in the NBA, and it showed tonight.

#9 of 82 - 11/15/13 - at Bankers Life Fieldhouse

Pacers (7-2) 123, Bucks 77

It was a battle between one of the NBA's best and the league's worst, and it proved to be no contest as Indiana annihilated Milwaukee 123-77. Paul George had a career high 53 points to go along with 6 rebounds, 6 assists and 6 steals while David West had 19/11, Lance Stephenson had 25/6/7 and Roy Hibbert had 12/8. The Blue and Gold shot an impressive 52% from the field in this rout, and their starting five outscored the Bucks', 115-54. Milwaukee shot just 38% of their field goals, but they had 3 highlights in tonight's blowout defeat:

1. Brandon Knight had a team high 34 points, without him this would be an even more brutal showing for the Bucks.
2. Milwaukee out-rebounded the Pacers 45-44, led by John Henson and Jeff Adrien with 8 boards.
3. The Bucks' reserves out-scored Indiana's 23-8, with Ersan Ilyasova scoring 9 and Nate Wolters with 7.

It was a fairly entertaining game to play, with George going for 53, but this was my biggest blowout in Strat basketball (46 points). Now you know why Indiana won 56 games in real life and Milwaukee won just 15 that season.

MILWAUKEE BUCKS
Pachulia 2,6,3 Middleton 0,0,1 Knight 34,5,3 Mayo 10,5,1 Henson 8,8,3 Sanders 0,5,0 Antetokounmpo 0,2,3 Sessions 0,1,1 Wolters 7,1,2 Ilyasova 9,4,4 Adrien 4,8,1

INDIANA PACERS
West 19,11,1 Stephenson 25,6,7 Hill 6,1,6 George 53,6,6 Hibbert 12,8,1 Scola 3,5,2 Turner 1,1,2 Watson 2,2,2 Butler 0,1,0 Fitzpatrick 2,3,0.

The Pacers, winners of 5 consecutive games, now head on to the United Center to take on the Chicago Bulls on November 16th.
