Last night’s contest in Indianapolis featured a pair of pretty darn good point guards. The one loss Indiana Pacers clearly got the best of the .500 Minnesota Timberwolves 98-84 but the point guard match-up was intriguing.
Here are the PG centric stat lines for each:
Their passing, defending and ball control outputs were identical. The differences showed up in scoring/shooting and rebounding. Hill scored 26 points on only 13 shot attempts while Ricky had his usual challenges (7 points/9 shots). The T’Wolves guard did have a nice edge in rebounds, nine to Hill’s three.
