Video: Pacers Beat Lakers at the Buzzer
If you're thinking that the Pacers simply got lucky, then you probably didn't watch the game. It's true the Lakers got off to their typical slow start (they led by just five at the break), but they finished the third quarter on a 17-0 run that should have been plenty to put the game away. Indiana fought hard to come back though, forcing six Laker turnovers in the fourth and outscoring L.A. 32-16 in the final period to come out on top.
And if you're wondering how the heck Troy Murphy was in position to get that final rebound, well, he gets a lot of them, actually. Coming into this game, he was third in the league in rebounding, and this makes nine straight games he's had double digit boards. The Pacers are just 7-10, but they've been extremely competitive in most of those games. They're also now the only team to beat both the Celtics and the Lakers this season, which is pretty impressive considering those clubs have just four losses total between them.
