George, Indiana Pacers Race Past Boston Celtics in Second Half

Written by 

BOSTON –  It was another example of a young defensive backcourt forcing turnovers and dominating in transition to make a big comeback against a plodding half-court offense. That may sound like the Celtics' calling card, but it was the Pacers that out sprinted the Celtics for the final 18 minutes Friday night.

Jordan Crawford was a perfect 8-for-8 in the first half, but the Pacers blew by the Celtics to turn an eight-point deficit into a 15-point blowout and send the Celtics to six straight losses.

Indiana wore down an eight point halftime deficit midway through the third quarter and led by 20 a quarter later. The Celtics offense couldn't even score double digits in the third quarter, committing a mind numbing nine turnovers.

The Garden Report broke down another stellar performance by Paul George and the flawless (and a bit lucky) first half from Jordan Crawford. They also discussed Kelly Olynyk spraining his ankle and Mr. Born Ready, Lance Stephenson.
