Sacramento accentuates Pacers’ crisis with victory at Indianapolis

The DIndiana Pacers ebacle in recent weeks it was confirmed yesterday with a defeat at home against one of the worst teams in the league. Sacramento Kings passed over the Pacers, who ended up making up an adverse result of 104 to 93 in the last minutes.

The difference between the two quintets was brutal. The Pacers, misplaced and out of ideas, allowed themselves to do anything for Sacramento who played with them for three quarters and finally took his foot off the gas in the final minutes.

A final quarter that served for Indiana to put a little makeup on the scoreboard of a game without history and with the Kings as the only team that lived up to expectations, perhaps even above them.

Marvin Bagley III led the great effort of the Californians, showing that he is more than recovered from his physical problems and that he is a man to follow in the league. The pivot went to 31 points and 12 rebounds on another great night leading the Kings.

Sacramento, what he couldn’t count on his bases De’Aaron Fox or Tyrese Haliburton, He managed to run a short but effective rotation for 36 minutes that was enough to scratch a triumph of pride and effort on his rival’s court.

In Indiana, the team was empty and out of ideas. Domas Sabonis was once again the leader of the Pacers but was far from what is expected of him. 17 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists They do not hide a poor impact on the game and a -13 differential with the Lithuanian on the court.

But it went to Caris LeVert, who last night threw up her shoes and did not even put the laces. The shooting guard missed 13 of his 18 pitches and it was the reflection of soulless Pacers who watch their ship sink and nobody does anything to save it.

The bench did its best to save the furniture but no one could take the step to cut the bloodletting caused by the Kings. Those of Walton took advantage of the serious crisis in Indiana and put their finger on the sore, to the bottom.

This defeat makes Pacers keep losing spots in the East, where they already occupy the ninth place and are just half a game away from losing it in favor of Washington. The Raptors are still three games away, but Indiana could stay out of the playoff fight.
