The aforementioned trend makes it especially surprising that this series has remained so close.

It wasn't just any win for the Pacers, it was a rout, the type we have been used to seeing a la the favorites in a number of these Round One games, not the underdog.

Lineup changes appeared to do the trick for Indiana, which moved forward Myles Turner into the lineup for Saturday's 100-83 big win. The Pacers held a rebounding edge for the first time in this series at 43-40, limiting Jonas Valanciunas to six after he totaled 48 in the first three games.

"I think our just general team awareness of the ways Jonas is hurting us is why we did better in Game 4 and it's gonna be a battle the entire series," Indiana coach Frank Vogel said.
