Bojan Bogdanovic led the way for the Pacers with 28 points after having an incredible night from the floor (11-13 from the floor; 6-7 from three-point range).

Of course, it doesn't help that the Warriors are missing Stephen Curry (left knee), Patrick McCaw (spine), Omri Casspi (right ankle) and Andre Iguodala (left knee).

After falling into a 21-point deficit with 7:14 left, Warriors coach Steve Kerr pulled five players, including Kevin Durant, leaving them on the bench for the rest of the game before delivering his blunt postgame assessment.

With the victory, IN became the first team to earn a season sweep over Golden State since Kerr became head coach.

IN forwards Bojan Bogdanovic (30 points) and Thaddeus Young (34 points) certainly approached the game with aggression. The Sixers aren't merely the NBA's hottest team (12 consecutive wins and counting), they're also its second-most efficient since the All-Star break (plus-10.0 net rating).

Golden State's defensive effort was certainly lackluster as IN shot 53.8 percent from the field and 51.7 percent from beyond the arc.

"We're the underdog in every matchup", Oladipo said. I'm mad. I'm embarrassed.

Following the game, Kerr was visibly displeased with his side's performance, telling reporters they failed to display a real effort to win, even if any further wins or losses won't affect their No. 2 standing in the Western Conference, with the Houston Rockets clinching top spot last month. I know this game doesn't mean anything in the seeding, but the playoffs start next week. It's an embarrassing effort and a pathetic effort. Instead, the Warriors chose to visit the Museum of African-American History along with children from Kevin Durant's hometown of Seat Pleasant, Maryland.

The Pacers' lead was still one with 6:32 left in the second quarter when in turned on the jets. The Pacers were in control from there, leading 97-77 after three quarters. Thad Young had 16 points and eight rebounds. They built a 20-point lead in the third quarter. "I thought our guys responded well to the challenge". Utah has held 14 of its last 17 opponents below 100 points, limiting teams to just 42.4 percent shooting over that stretch.
