Positive takeaway

For much of the game, the Herd gave the Mad Ants more than they could handle when they were on the offensive end.

Overall, the Herd shot 44-of-86 from the field, which was good for 51 percent, the seventh-highest mark of the season in that department.

A big reason for why the Herd found so much success putting the ball in the basket was pushing the pace on the Mad Ants throughout the game, especially coming off of their misses as the Pacers’ affiliate was left scattered when getting back on defense to slow down the Herd.

Add in the Herd’s sturdy cadre of big men securing second chance opportunities as well as rolling to the rim with little resistance and they certainly couldn’t be stopped by the Mad Ants in that regard as the game wore on.
