Victor Oladipo was unconscious on Friday night, dropping a triple-double of 28 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists to go with four steals and six 3-pointers in the Pacers’ huge Game 6 win over the Cavs.
Oladipo couldn’t find his shot in the last three games of this series, especially in these last two losses to Cleveland. But with the Pacers’ backs against the wall, the expected Most Improved Player put on a magnificent performance, hitting 11-of-19 from the floor and 6-of-8 from deep. Oladipo was quite simply the best player on the floor and that’s no small feat when you share a basketball court with LeBron James. He led the Pacers in scoring, rebounding and assists, becoming the third player in franchise history to post a playoff triple-double. More importantly though, Oladipo and the Pacers kept their season alive and forced a Game 7.
