Pacers’ Summer League Gets Off to Winning Start

All three new Pacers rookies played in their first Summer League game against the Orlando Magic, a 86-77 victory.

Second round pick Lance Stephenson impressed the most with 21 points on 8 of 10 shooting to lead the way.  10th overall pick Paul George struggled from the field but was perfect from the line en route to 12 points, while 51st pick Magnum Rolle had 13 points and 5 boards.

Nothing to start spraying your pants over, but a win is a win, even if it is in the Summer League where almost nothing ever translates to the regular season.  Nevertheless, it’s good to let these rookies get a bit of a run and see how they perform against their peers.  Hopefully they can keep this up and make things interesting.
