Details and Personal Analysis
It should be noted that in this match for Memphis not played Ja Morant, Brandon Clark, Jonas Valanciunas, as well as other players who were also out of action by the Grizzlies, this significantly diminished the potential of the team.
All quarters were dominated by the Pacers against a Grizzlies that had many defensive cracks and where they could never discount the advantage of more than 10 digits established by the Pacers.
Indiana established their game and completely dominated all the quarters of the Memphis team that despite being playing at home, I bill the absence of several of their important players, the Pacers continue to win and set a positive record in the east conference. It was an authoritative Indiana victory over Memphis.
Malcolm Brogdon 19 Pts. 6 Reb. 9 Ast.
