Pacers 110, Lakers 91: Ugly end to streak

INDIANAPOLIS -- Woof. This wasn't a game. Just a slaughter. The Los Angeles Lakers trailed by 33 points at intermission, their worst halftime deficit since the team moved to L.A. in 1960. They were four points shy of setting a franchise record for fewest points in any half (23, set against Denver in 2009). Basically, it was downhill from the start and should've been called off from there, as the Indiana Pacers blew out the Lakers 110-91 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, snapping L.A.'s three-game winning streak.

Turning point: Tipoff.

Player of the game: Several Pacers players qualified here. You could pick a name blindfolded and not be wrong. But let's go with Rodney Stuckey. He had 20 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists in a crisp 29 minutes. His plus/minus: +31. Not too shabby.

Milestone of the game: Kobe Bryant finished with an ugly stat line -- 21 points on 8-of-26 shooting in 30 minutes. But he also made more history, becoming the all-time Lakers franchise leader in fouls. Bryant entered the game just three fouls shy of surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who recorded 3,224 fouls in his 14 seasons in purple and gold, and Bryant reached that mark in the second half.

Stat of the game: There are plenty to choose from. In the first half, Pacers guard C.J. Miles made six field goals, one fewer than the Lakers did as a team.

Final thought: Call it a hangover from Bryant's historic night in Minneapolis, when he surpassed Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list, but it was still quite a hangover.
