On Pacer preseason game:

Jeremiah Johnson: "It didn't really feel like a preseason game. Then, I think even in that first game, Nate McMillan, talked today after practice, his plan was not to have Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis maybe play as much as they did. But, they were close they had a chance to make a run, he wanted to try and win that game. I was watching, I didn't really know what was going to happen in that 4th quarter. You knew he wanted them to play and significant with their starting group in that second unit. They definitely played to win, I thought effort, and even on the second half from back to back was impressive."

On Pacer cohesion:

Jeremiah Johnson: "I think it was beneficial, the guys that were in town in September, those guys really got to know each other. They didn't have Myles Turner or Domantas Sabonis during that time, because they were playing overseas. I think that time was beneficial, but you did see some of the benefits of why Kevin Pritchard and Chad Buchanan went after certain guys, because there are some interchangeable parts and versatility. Just by an earlier look watching Turner and Sabonis together, when those guys are on the court, it looks like an opposing lineup."
