A 101-96 loss to the New Orleands Hornets at home. At least it was the second game of a back-to-back. At least Hibbert scored a career high 27 points and grabbed 10 boards. At least Dahntay Jones played well and aggresively for the first time in a while, with 16 points. At least, on a night where Granger, Murphy and Dunleavy all had off games, the team still managed to keep it close.
Nevertheless, a loss is a loss. Pacers drop to 14-26, and fall to 12th in the East. Still 5 games out of the 8th and final playoff spot.
The road doesn’t get any easier from here – 3 road games in a row, starting with Miami, then the next night in Orlando, and then Detroit.
