Video: No, really, the Pacers shot 20-21 in Q3

Pacers shoot 20-21 in third quarter to defeat Nuggets by eleventy billion.

And that's how you win a third quarter.

My favorite part of this video is the progressive desperation in the Nuggets' announcer's voice.

"Dunleavey.. that can't go in..." (Swish.)

"Dunleavey... Again!"

"Dunleavey... AGAIN!"

And then the exasperation as McRoberts misses at the end. Seriously. How about being Josh McRoberts on that plane tonight? That's going to be awkward. And funny.

20 makes out of 21 tries. Nice shootin', boys.

Pacers go nova in 3rd quarter to beat Nuggets

Posted by Matt Moore

The Pacers were up ten at halftime, 59-49. A reasonable lead, but nothing egregious over a Nuggets team on a back to back. Very much in range. Or so you'd think.

Then the third quarter happened. The Pacers shot 20 of 21 in the 3rd. 20 of 21. A 54-point 3rd quarter, and that's all she wrote. An absolutely ballistic quarter from Indiana. Josh McRoberts missed a three with two seconds left in the quarter to break up the 1.0 FG% for the quarter. The Pacers subsequently ran up 144 on Denver in the win.

Most insane was the shooting of Mike Dunleavey. Take a look .

The Pacers were also hyper-efficient in the quarter, nailing mostly threes, layups, and free throws. It was an efficiency clinic. Denver's defense just absolutely melted.

When you're hot, you're hot .
