Pacers Vs. Wizards In Pixels: John Wall Struggles, So It's All About Brian Cook

WASHINGTON — Catch up quickly on the news, notes and must-see from last night's Pacers vs. Wizards game -- good and bad -- with 'Postive Pixels, Wicked Pixels.' It's your morning-after Wizards hangover cure.

Positive Pixels

Brian Cook's (random) big night. With Nene and Trevor Booker sidelined with Plantar Fasicitis, Cook got 28+ minutes and had his best night of the season. His 10 points were nice, but his nine rebounds were sublime. That effort accounted for 29 percent of all boards he's pulled down this season. Tonight, Brian Cook rewrote his own legacy.

Jordan Crawford kept the Wizards close — at least in the first half. Jordan Crawford's shot selection is the bane of many Wizards fans, even when the shots go in. It's not always ideal, but sometimes Crawford is *the* option on offense (especially when John Wall is struggling) and tonight he knocked down a lot of the Jordan Crawford Shots he put up. Can't wait to wake up and find out that we're actually inside Jordan's dream within a dream.

Wicked Pixels

John Wall is still in a funk. Head coach Randy Wittman wants Wall to make simple plays to get his swagger back. His teammates say everyone goes through struggles and he'll get it back. John insists everything's fine. He's probably right.

Still, Wall finished four-for-15 from the field with just three assists and played just 28 minutes while Shelvin Mack was given an opportunity to run the point. He made some odd choices during the game — bailing out of drives to throw awkward kick-outs, and a pair of futile 360-layup attempts come to mind. Again, nothing to worry about. But there are 11 games left, and it'd be encouraging to see him bounce back before the offseason.

Indiana made a lot of shots. The Pacers shot 87 percent in the first quarter of a regular season NBA basketball game. You have never done this in NBA 2K or even NBA Jam.

Pacers Vs. Wizards Final Score: Washington Lags Behind In Second Half, Goes Down 109-96

The Washington Wizards trailed the Indiana Pacers by just one-point at halftime, as the Wiz looked as if they were going to battle and keep the game close. Unfortunately for the Wiz however, they let the game get out of hand right after the half and the Pacers were able to pull away. Danny Granger did a lot of damage in the first half, and he finished up the game leading the Pacers in scoring with 20 points. Darren Collison finished up the game with a double-double, putting down 17 points and picking up 11 assists.

Jordan Crawford's scoring slowed down in the second half, but he did finish up still leading the Wiz in scoring with 28 points on the night. Kevin Seraphin finished up with 19 points and 10 rebounds while John Wall rebounded in the second half with 13 points.

Pacers Vs. Wizards Score Update: Indiana Takes 52-51 Lead At Halftime

The Washington Wizards led the Indiana Pacers heading into halftime, but a late bucket gave the Pacers a one-point lead as time expired and the teams made their way to the locker room. The Wizards are once again having a hard time slowing down Pacers guard Danny Granger, as he's picked up 13 points in the first half and also grabbed 5 rebounds.

Jordan Crawford has had a wonderful first half for the Wiz however, picking up 21 points already and hitting on four of his seven three-point shots in the first half. Kevin Seraphin has also picked up 10 points and seven rebounds while John Wall has just three points and one assist thus far.

If the Wiz can slow down Granger and Crawford stays hot, they can get right back in the game and pull away.
