The Indiana Pacers swept the Sacramento Kings 2-0 at the 2019 NBA India Games!
This contest was quite different from the first game, as the Pacers used a 46-point second quarter to take a commanding lead and they never let up. Their bench did the majority of the damage, scoring 91 of the team's 130 points. The Kings offence couldn't replicate their performance from the first contest, failing to cut into Indiana's lead at any point in the second half.
