Chicago Bulls vs. Indiana Pacers: Postgame Grades and Analysis for Chicago
Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

The Indiana Pacers defeated the shorthanded Chicago Bulls, 97-92, in a game that came down to the wire at Bankers Life Fieldhouse Sunday night.

Playing without Richard Hamilton, Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson (and, of course, Derrick Rose), the Bulls fought admirably all night, getting 20 points apiece from Marco Belinelli and Jimmy Butler. However, it wasn't enough to upend the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Pacers won thanks to a Herculean effort from David West, who scored 31 points off 11-of-18 shooting to lead all scorers. George Hill put in 21 off a perfect 6-of-6 from the floor.

Even though Chicago ultimately lost this game, you have to hand it to them—the Bulls played extraordinarily well given the circumstances.
