LA struggled in the final minutes of the ball game. They trailed by a couple of points and was forced to send Indiana to the line, but the rebounds were tipped by the Pacers and time expired.
Clippers forward Jared Dudley also took to Twitter after the loss, he appears to be looking past the loss and is focused on their upcoming seven-game East Coast road trip.
Tough loss to a good Pacer team. We had our chances but just couldn’t get over the hump today.Time to go on this east coast trip and do work

This week will be a true test for the Pacers as they continue their West Coast trip Monday against the Portland Trail Blazers and will play the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder later in the week.
