Warriors-Pacers, 1st Ld-Writethru,788

Warriors-Pacers, 1st Ld-Writethru,788

The Pacers won for the sixth time in seven games by defending, stringing together stops, and playing sound basketball at the other end en route to a 126-106 win in front of 17,923 fans - the 14th sellout of the season.

The sellout crowd frequently shook Bankers Life Fieldhouse during the fourth quarter. Thompson has 1,545. Nick Young made all four of his free-throw attempts, extending his streak to 32.

Bojan Bogdanovic shot a blistering 83 percent from the floor (11-of-13, including 6-of-7 from 3), finishing with 28 points. It's their first season sweep over the Warriors since 2011-12.

By any measure, the Pacers were impressive.

Golden State cut the deficit in half by scoring the first 10 points of the fourth quarter before in answered with 17-1 run to regain control.

The second-year pro, who appeared to be trying to dunk, did a scissor kick in the air over Carter's shoulder before landing hard on his back.

'Spider-Man' release date announced, not coming to Xbox, says Insomniac Games
The standard edition of Spider-Man will be available both physically and digitally for United States $59.99 / CDN $79.99 MSRP. Because of this, we recommend waiting until the full statue is revealed before purchasing the Collector's Edition.

While McMillan beamed, Golden State coach Steve Kerr fumed. While no one is 100 percent at this point of a season, nobody is on the injury report - knock on wood - and that's huge a week before the playoffs. And give them an experience at the National African-American History and Culture Museum that they might not have had contextualized - our history as a country, where we are and where we're going. That's a really good team.

Kevin Durant, who finished with 27 points on 34.8 percent shooting, disagreed with Kerr's assessment, telling The Athletic, "I thought we cared tonight ..."

The Warriors' joyful forward chuckled over a reporter joking he would have a "flu game" the way Michael Jordan famously did in Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz.

The Pacers ended any uncertainty after the Warriors closed to 97-87 with about 10 minutes left.

Meanwhile, forward Bojan Bogdanovic scored 28 points on 11-of-13 shooting, including 6-for-7 on 3-pointers while Victor Oladipo scored 21 points of his own for the Pacers, who are now 5th in the Eastern Conference. "The game doesn't matter", Kerr said. I know that this game doesn't mean anything in the seeding, but the playoffs start next week. It's an embarrassing effort and a pathetic effort.
