NBA Round Up On Halloween Night; We got some cheering – Pacers Guard Victor Oladipo

Indiana Pacers 101 – 83 Sacremento Kings :

A strong first quarter allowed the Indiana Pacers starters to rest for most of the second quarter.

Bojan Bogdanovic scored 17 points to lead a balanced Indiana offense and help the Pacers to a 101 -83 out of the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night.

The Pacers (4 -3 ) scored the first nine points and built a 55 – 30 lead.

“We got to do some cheering today”  – Pacers guard Victor Oladipo said.

Victor Oladipo who scored 23 points for the Pacers and Indiana second-year forward Domantas Sabonis, coming off a personal best; 22 points and 12 rebounds on Sunday, had a double-double in the first half with 10 points and 12 rebounds.

He finished with a career-high 16 rebounds in addition to 12 points and five assists.

Brooklyn Nets 114 – 122 Phoenix Suns :

The Brooklyn Nets have lost three straight games and have yet to win a game on Halloween since the 2007-2008 season. Despite a 33-point effort from D’Angelo Russell, the Brooklyn Nets (3-5) lost to the Phoenix Suns (3-4), 122-114, Tuesday night at Barclays Center.

The Nets stormed back from an 18-point deficit in the third quarter, but surrendered 35 points in the fourth and folded late.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson showed once again he can anchor the Brooklyn attack, scoring a career-high 21 points. Dinwiddie facilitated well and scored 15 points. He finished with one turnover to four assists. He’s leading the league in assist-to-turnover ratio.

Bucks 91 – 110 Thunder :

The Milwaukee Bucks weren’t in for any treats on Halloween. That much was clear early in Tuesday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

The Bucks, however, did perform a trick. For long stretches, their offense disappeared in a 110-91 loss. The one-sided affair was reminiscent of Milwaukee’s 31-point beatdown at the hands of the Thunder in April in Oklahoma City.

No other Bucks player reached double figures as the team shot 32 of 76 (42.1%) from the field, including just 9 of 30 (30%) on three-pointers to go with 15 turnovers.

Lakers 113 – 93 Pistons :

In the best team effort of the season, the Lakers routed the Pistons 113-93 to get their 3rd win of the season, which moves the team to 3-4 on the year, giving them a nice bounce back from consecutive defeats on Friday and Saturday against the Raptors and the Jazz.

The Lakers racked up 9 steals and had 5 blocked shots, while only 14 fouls all night. Detroit only shot 3 FT’s all evening, and two of those were in garbage time. When you can defend without fouling while also extending your defense and pressuring passing lanes, you can do major damage on that end and the Lakers did just that.
