The Washington Wizards trailed the Indiana Pacers after the first quarter of play and the Pacers started to build a lead, but the Wizards made a late rally in the second quarter to keep the game close as both sides went to the locker rooms for halftime. The Wiz were able to out rebound the Pacers in the first half, but they also turned the ball over more than twice as many times.
In the first half the Wiz spread the ball around with John Wall and Chris Singleton leading the way in scoring with eight points each while Jordan Crawford added seven points. Meanwhile for the Pacers, the Wiz have had trouble stopping Danny Granger, who's picked up 18 points already while David West and George Hill have each added 10 points. If the Wiz can slow Granger down and start to hit some of their three-point shots, they can get right back into the game.
