Indy Cornrows "Given the struggles for the Indiana Pacers this season, the rare (mostly) feel good win has to come as a relief.

George Hill (groin) is out tonight vs #Sixers.
CSN Bay Area "The Warriors started slowly, looking uninspired and out of sync. Until Klay Thompson shook them from their slumber.

Pro Basketball Talk "Early on in the Pacers’ 110-85 win over the Nets on Saturday, Kevin Garnett did something unseemly to David West.
