It was a slow start for the Golden State Warriors at Conseco Field House in Indianapolis as The Indiana Pacers hold a 29-19 lead after the 1st quarter. Golden State started the game 0-4 from the floor and had to take an early timeout due to a 7-0 Indiana start, and it didn’t get much better as the W’s started 8-26 (30.6%) from the floor.
Danny Granger started out with 11 points for the Pacers while Roy Hibbert added 7. David Lee had 6 points and 5 rebounds for the Warriors with Monta Ellis adding 4. Stephen Curry is yet to make a shot.
Dorell Wright got into some early foul trouble, and went back to the locker room with about 5 minutes left in the first quarter; he seemed to be hobbling a little bit. He didn’t return to the bench the rest of the period.
The Warriors find themselves in another early hole and are going to have to shoot their way out of it. Let’s hope some buckets start to fall.
