The Bobcats went into Indiana and the Pacers walked all over them!

1st quarter
The Bobcats opened the game on a 9-3 run in the first 5:26 of the game. The Pacers then turned the tables and took a 14-11 into the second quarter after Chandler picked up his second foul.

2nd quarter
The Pacers continued their run into the second quarter going up 26-16 3:54 to go in the quarter. Neither team could make a serious run from the rest of the quarter. The Bobcats did cut the lead to 28-35 going into the 3rd.

3rd quarter
The Cats cut the lead to 31-35 40 seconds into the quarter before the Pacers went on an 11-0 run to jump out to a 46-31 lead with 4:06 left in the quarter. With one minute to go the Cats were down by 20! The Cats cut that lead to a 44-60 going into the fourth.

4th quarter
The Bobcats tried to make a comeback by double teaming the Pacers in the fourth quarter. This worked somewhat as the Cats cut the lead to 61-70 with 2 minutes left. The surge was all for naught as the Pacers held off the Cats 75-64. The Cats did foul down the stretch and still could not make a serious run despite Diaw missing 3 free throws.

Odd stat: Former Pacer center Roy Hibbert did not make his presence known in this game. The coach is livid with him and might bench him next game.
