The Indiana Pacers are a hot mess right now, and this play is just an illustration of their struggles.
During the third quarter of the Atlanta Hawks’ 101-93 win over the Pacers Saturday, Jeff Teague fooled Evan Turner with a sweet crossover.
Maybe Turner’s defensive assignment was to make sure he didn’t get beat to the baseline and that could be why he went so hard, but he was so faked out it was embarrassing. He was so lost his back ended up facing Teague:
Teague led the Hawks with 28 points in the game. Roy Hibbert continued to struggle for Indiana, posting just 8 points and 8 rebounds. They’re looking terrible.
