D.J. Augustin started for injured George Hill (thigh) in Friday's blowout loss to the Celtics, scoring six points on 2-of-4 shooting (including a three) with one rebound and four assists in 30 minutes.

The Pacers need all of their guys playing well to be passable on offense, so with Hill out, Paul George (nine points, 4-of-18 FGs, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals) struggling, David West (10 points, 4-of-18 FGs, 10 rebounds, two steals, one block) also struggling, and Roy Hibbert (seven points, 3-of-6 FGs, 10 boards, one block, 24 minutes) playing the invisible game -- it's not surprising that it all fell apart tonight.
