(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) – The Pacers handed LeBron James the worst loss of his career as Indiana blew the doors off of James and the Los Angeles Lakers in a 136-94 romp.
Bojan Bogdanovic was one of seven Pacers to score in double figures and led the team with a game-high 24 points, including 10-of-17 from the field. Myles Turner added 22 points while Domantas Sabonis, Edmund Sumner and Aaron Holiday each scored 17.
The Pacers tied an NBA franchise-record by knocking down nineteen 3-pointers at a blistering 55-percent clip while also hitting 56-percent from the field.
Indiana led wire-to-wire and never allowed the Lakers to get within single digits after the first basket of the second quarter was scored.
“We look at it as another win, but it does feel good,” Thaddeus Young said. “It’s not really about beating them by 42, but we played a complete game.”
The win was even more impressive considering the Pacers were playing the second game of a back-to-back after playing in New Orleans the night before.
The Pacers welcome LA’s other team to town on Thursday when they host the Clippers.
