Warriors-Pacers, 1st Ld-Writethru,788

The Pacers' lead was still one with 6:32 left in the second quarter when in turned on the jets. Despite their efforts, the Warriors were never close to the Pacers after the second half, with the Eastern Conference side now boasting six wins in seven games against them this regular season.

Following the 126-106 road loss, Steve Kerr was rather heated and blasted his team for a "pathetic" effort, saying that they did not care. Bogdanovic was 6 of 7 on 3s while IN was 15 of 29 from beyond the arc. Bojan Bogdanovic was the surprise of the night for the Pacers as he scored a game-high 28 points and was an efficient 11-13 from the field. At the time, Golden State announced that X-rays, a CT scan and an MRI "were all clear".

Kevin Durant scored 34 points while being booed throughout the game, leading Golden State to a 111-107 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

"They played better basketball than us", Durant added. "I thought our guys responded well to the challenge". Just try to do my job in the rehab process and get back as soon as I can.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Pacers looked playoff-ready Thursday night against a Golden State team that's still working on it.

IN fell behind 9-4, but in a harbinger of things to come, the Pacers reeled off six straight possessions with a field goal to take an 18-13 lead. The Pacers went on a 17-1 run that answered the Warriors initial burst to start the fourth quarter and push the Pacers lead all the way to 26 points. Bogdanovic scored 14 points on 6 of 7 shooting in the first half, but only two of his makes were from beyond the 3-point arc. "We're just going to take one game at a time".

The second quarter was just a teaser for a dominant third quarter.

"I think just caring", Kerr said when asked what the Warriors' main issue is, via NBC Sports.

The win gave IN their first season sweep of the Warriors since 2011-12 season.

The Pacers controlled the game from start to finish but entering the fourth quarter the Warriors quickly cut a 20-point lead in half in a little over a minute.

Golden State started the fourth on a 10-0 run, cutting the deficit to 10, but IN answered with seven straight to make it 104-87.
