(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) – The Indiana Pacers returned home after their 0-4 road trip and took their frustrations out on the Denver Nuggets as they manhandled Nikola Jokic and company in a 36-point blowout 124-88.
Bojan Bogdanovic led the way with a game-high 35 points while Myles Turner collected a 17 point and 11 rebound double-double.
“I was playing bad the last couple of games so I was extra aggressive today,” Bogdanovic said.
The Pacers shot a blistering 56-percent from the field and 44-percent from 3-point range.
“Basically, we’re still in a race,” head coach Nate McMillan said. “We made the playoffs but we still have an opportunity for homecourt advantage so we are going to do what we can for that No. 4 seed.”
The home game was just a quick pit stop as the Pacers get right back on the road for a two-game swing against Paul George and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday followed by Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics on Friday.
