Pacers take four of five from Milwaukee


INDIANAPOLIS — When it was over, after three more technical fouls and some overall chippy-ness, the two sides parted amicably.

Even the central figure of the game-ball related fracas after Milwaukee’s win on Dec. 13 — Giannis Antetokounmpo — lingered after Indiana’s 142-130 win over the Bucks on Wednesday to shake hands with several Pacers. Those notably included James Johnson Jr., the revered veteran who played for the Pacers last season but didn’t have a team this year until Indiana scooped him up on Dec. 14, the day after Antetokounmpo ran into the tunnel heading to the Pacers’ locker room to try to get what he thought was the ball he’d just just used to score a Bucks franchise-record 64 points.
