I don’t know how many times I have to tell you all that Victor reminds me of former Pacer great Reggie Miller. He proved it time and time again on Sunday afternoon, by doing what a captain does, being a big-time leader. After the Pacers looked like they were down and out, Victor and the defense began stapling the Clippers to the Staples Center floor. Oladipo was interviewed on Pacers radio after the game, and he gave credit to Myles Turner for getting them set in the right offense to run the right plays.
Now the Pacers must pour barbecue sauce on the chicken McNuggets in Denver on Tuesday night to complete a perfect road trip. Austin Croshere, former Pacer, has played in Denver, and told Mark Boyle, tha Pacers play by play man, that even when the Nuggets go out of town, they are affected by the altitude.
With the win, the Pacers raised their season record to 46 wins and 31 losses, and now have won five straight. Even in the face of adversity, Victor has proven all season long that he can come through with flying colors. The Pacers are lucky to have the native of Marlboro, Maryland, and will be a threat within the Eastern Conference to bring the Larry O’Brien trophy back to Indiana. This will be their first NBA title, if they can get it.
