Roy Hibbert and the Pacers dropped to 1-3 on the season after a disappointing home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Roy had 16 points on 7-10 shooting and he added 7 rebounds and 5 blocks, but it wasn't enough to get the Pacers back in the win column.

The Wizards rode a big second half and strong performances from their bench to take down the Knicks at MSG. Otto Porter played 28 minutes (including all of the 4th quarter). He only had 4 points on 2-5 shooting, but had 7 rebounds and 4 assists and played solid defense all night. It was another really strong showing from Otto.
