It’s not exactly Game 1 of the NBA Finals vs the Blazers but Jeff Teague is destroying the Pacers the way Jordan used to destroy the Blazers. He even payed homage to his Airness in the 4th quarter by doing the famous shrug after hitting a ridiculous 3-pointer.
“I knew it was a 3,” Teague said. “Hopefully they just count it.”
Teague’s 22 points and 10 assists made him the first Hawk since Spud Webb in 1986 to have a 20pt/10ast game. It’s also the first instance in this year’s playoffs.
