Pacers celebrate survival of mankind with win over Cavs, again

We're alive, yay!

The Indiana Pacers celebrated the passing of the Mayan doomsday prophecy by beating the Cavs in Cleveland, 99-89.

Not much to say except that I thought the Cavs were going to be more competitive than they were, having previously been routed by the Pacers in Indiana not that long ago. But then again, I didn't expect them to be missing NBA rebounding leader Anderson Varejao, who would have undoubtedly given Roy Hibbert fits. Instead, Hibbert finished with a team-high 18 points to go with 6 rebounds and 2 blocks.

All five starters finished in double figures plus Gerald Green, who followed up his season high against the Jazz with 14, including a ridiculous in-traffic slam that almost deserved the taunting technical that followed it.

As a team, the Pacers shot 48.8%, which is really really good for them.

Right now, 15-12 is not a bad place to be.
