Indiana is quietly one of the most underrated and intelligent basketball cities, and Pacers fans at Bankers Life Fieldhouse showed that during Wednesday’s game against the Suns.
The Pacers came into the contest as 10.5-point favorites, which is more chalk than we’re used to seeing them lay, but they took care of business. They blew out the visitors, 131-97, jumping out to a 19-point lead after just one quarter of play.
Fans did their part in making things difficult for the Suns as well, which they did by trolling Phoenix guard Kelly Oubre Jr. He went to the free-throw line, and they began chanting “John Wall hates you!”
It’s true that Oubre’s tenure in Washington didn’t end well, but hate is a strong word.
