What They’re Saying – Dec. 3

The Indiana Pacers started their first West Coast road trip of the season with a 116-99 loss Tuesday night to the Phoenix Suns. Here’s what they’re saying about the loss:

IndyStar: As he has always been against the Pacers, [Goran] Dragic was hard to contain. According to STATS, Dragic has averaged 20.6 points on 57.1 percent shooting in the five previous career starts against the Pacers. On Tuesday, Dragic surpassed his season-high with 34 points and made 11-of-15 shots including five 3-pointers. Read More

Bright Side of the Sun: After allowing the Pacers to shoot 58 percent in the first quarter, and 61 percent in the second quarter to take a 56-54 lead going into the half, the Suns allowed only 43 points in the second half, dropping the Pacers’ field goal percentage to only 40 percent in the third quarter and just 33 percent in the fourth. That was the biggest difference in the game. Read More

Reuters: The sluggish Phoenix Suns needed a win. They needed to tighten up their defense, get their fast break in gear and give their high-scoring backcourt room to operate. Luckily, the perfect opponent was next on the schedule, allowing the Suns to emphatically check all the boxes. Read More
