Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Myles Turner was frustrated with the way he played in the opener, so he did something about it. He played pissed off and finished with a career game.
Yet the Pacers came up short, by one, once again.
“The margins are very, very slim,” Carlisle said.

Wizards made 19 three-pointers just one time last season. They have already accomplished that two games into this season. The increasing shooting on this roster is night and day different. – 11:28 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Wizards announced attendance for the home opener was 15,407 out of a max capacity of 20,356.
The lower bowl filled in nicely, but definitely a lot of empty seats in the upper levels.
A deep and exciting team will certainly draw in more fans. – 11:25 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie is back! In tonight’s win over Indiana, he had 34 points, 9 assists, 6 rebounds, 6 threes and just 1 turnover while shooting 54.2% from the field, 66.7% from three and 100% from the free throw line. pic.twitter.com/ryteLfmpfw11:10 PM

Myles Turner is such a beast. He had 40 points, 10 rebounds, 5 threes, 3 blocks, 1 steal and just 1 turnover while shooting 68.2% from the field and 55.6% from three-point range. 😳 – 11:04 PM
Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Pretty fun OT win tonight for the Bradley Beal-less Wizards. What you need to know: washingtonpost.com/sports/2021/10…10:53 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
The Wizards are 2-0. They beat a playoff-caliber team without Bradley Beal in overtime.
Five observations from a wild night on F St.: nbcsports.com/washington/wiz…10:48 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Kyle Kuzma said he was out of the game when he really noticed the crowd at Capital One Arena: “We were even shocked on the bench. We were like ‘yo, it’s gonna be turnt up this year.'” – 10:46 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Kyle Kuzma on the atmosphere at Capital One Arena: “Man, I thought it was great. I didn’t expect that many fans to come out, honestly, just from looking at preseason. Man, I was definitely wrong. Fans came out, showed out for us. We really, really needed them.” – 10:36 PM
Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Wizards first 2-0 start since 2017. – 10:31 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Pacers opponents are 32/69 (46.4%) from three so far this season. A problem that has maintained from preseason, when the Pacers gave up the 9th-highest 3-point percentage in the league. – 10:17 PM

2-0 Wizards!!!!!! – 10:12 PM
Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Unseld called this win a gut-check for the Wizards. Wasn’t where they wanted to be defensively, but.. “this game proves that we can get it done.” – 10:09 PM
Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Unseld’s message to his team after they started feeling like Beal wouldn’t play today was to remind them: “We have all we need.” (Do not overreact and take that as a shot at Beal) – 10:05 PM

Mark Followill @MFollowill
Mavs will play a 1-1 Raptors team tomorrow after Toronto won in Boston tonight 115-83. The Raptors scored just 83 points in a loss to open the season vs Washington two days ago. They had 84 through 3 quarters tonight. Raptors rookie Scottie Barnes had 25 to lead all scorers – 9:57 PM
StatMuse @statmuse
Myles Turner career-high night:
40 PTS
10 REB
5 3PT
3 BLK
He joins LeBron, Harden, Durant, Boogie, Vince and T-Mac as the only players in NBA history to put up those numbers (or better). pic.twitter.com/vIJnFEvIEy9:55 PM

Tony East @TEastNBA
Pacers bench had 18 points, Wizards had 53. Washington’s second unit did well on self-made shots, Pacers couldn’t cover everybody. Defense has to be better. – 9:55 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
The Lonzo Ball Revenge Game has been less interesting than the Aaron Holiday Revenge Game. I will keep you apprised of other UCLA backcourt developments as they transpire. – 9:53 PM
Jeff Zillgitt @JeffZillgitt
The Wizards aren’t a top-four team in the East, but GM Tommy Sheppard has built a team with depth and one that can compete for a playoff spot. Wizards were eight deep in win vs. Pacers without Beal, Hachimura and Bryant. – 9:53 PM
Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
Myles Turner tonight:
✅ 40 PTS (career high)
✅ 10 REB
✅ 15-22 FG
✅ 5-9 3P
Turner is the first @Indiana Pacers player to record a 40-point, 10-rebound game since Danny Granger on Dec. 17, 2008. – 9:52 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Much like he did at the open practice at Morgan State, Montrezl Harrell is signing several autographs for fans at Capital One Arena. And then he is given his two daughters from the stands to take back to the locker room with him. – 9:51 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Pacers fall to the Wizards 135-134. Two games, two one point losses for the Pacers. Really, really tough start to the season, especially given this teams early schedule. Need to grab some wins in these close games. – 9:49 PM

DAVIS BERTANS READS THE TWEETS pic.twitter.com/Yu2njwk1NP9:49 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Yow. Quite the home opener for Wes Unseld Jr.
Wizards beat the Pacers, 135-134 in OT. Huge game from Spencer Dinwiddie, Kyle Kuzma and Davis Bertans.
Myles Turner had 40 and 10 for Indiana – 9:49 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
So the Heat, who arrived in Indy at about 6 p.m., will be getting the Pacers on Saturday with Indy coming off an overtime loss in Washington. Quite a night, though, for Turner (40 points), Sabonis (28) and Brogdon (28). – 9:48 PM
J. Michael Falgoust @ThisIsJMichael
This is called an offensive foul on Brogdon to deny them possession late in OT. It’s early in season but refs still rewarding flops and selling of contact 🤦🏽‍♂️ pic.twitter.com/4xy3399ucs9:48 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers drop to 0-2 after 135-134 loss to Wizards. The start to their schedule is rough, but they lost both games by 1.
And it wastes Turner’s career game: 40pts, 10rebs, 3blks. Dinwiddie went off for 34.
Up next: vs Heat on Saturday. – 9:48 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
3 second differential and Pacers opt not to foul. Lolz as three different Pacer coaches on court trying to get them to trap Kuzma. – 9:47 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Wizards beat the Pacers in overtime without Bradley Beal. They are 2-0, their best start since 2017-18. – 9:47 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie to Kyle Kuzma.
BOTH GUYS W/EXCELLENT EXECUTION pic.twitter.com/858AdSHWzy9:46 PM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
this Pacers/Wizards game is exactly why im going to keep spamming the NBA with unsolicited advice until they rollout their own redzone. – 9:45 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Two brutal last possessions for the Pacers. An offensive foul on Sabonis before a Brogdon made 3, then a questionable offensive foul on Brogdon.
Wizards went 4-0 vs the Pacers last season and averaged 140ppg. They’re at 134, with a 3-point edge, with 34.4s left. – 9:45 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS

Spencer Dinwiddie putting on a master class. BIG SHOT pic.twitter.com/85NDrVXplZ9:44 PM

John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Indy has played zone since about 4 min mark (my guesstimate) and all of overtime. That’s one way to keep Sabonis – Turner combo on court in crunch time – 9:43 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
First career 40 point game for Myles Turner. Huge, huge performance. Pacers up 6 in OT. – 9:37 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Pacers start OT on a 6-0 run and Wes Unseld Jr. calls timeout.
Wizards down 129-123 with 3:05 left in OT. – 9:36 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers forward Justin Holiday didn’t play in the 4th and McConnell is out with the starters for OT.
He tweaked his left ankle in the first half. – 9:34 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Overtime!!
Looked like Dinwiddie was so locked in on buzzer stepback that he missed both chance to drive and an open Kuzma
Nonetheless, this is one of the best Aaron Holiday Revenge Games I’ve eve seen. – 9:33 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Wizards miss at the buzzer and the Pacers are going to overtime. 123-123. 5 extra minutes. – 9:33 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
I’m starting to wonder if Spencer Dinwiddie will be a noticeably better shooter post-ACL rehab. He’s a 41.0 FG%/31.8% 3PT guy for his career but tonight is 5-for-7 from three tonight. Just hit a huge one there. – 9:30 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Wizards end up with 4 players on same side of floor with Dinwiddie dribbling up top but but tie game anyway on Dinwiddie 30 foot bomb. – 9:30 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Well contested, but a huge shot from Dinwiddie. He’s scored the last 8 points for the Wizards and it’s tied at 123 with 33 seconds to go. – 9:30 PM
Bobby Marks @BobbyMarks42
That’s 31 for Spencer Dinwiddie
Game tied at 123 – 9:29 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers have held the Wizards to 17pts in the 4th after 30+ in each of the first three.
It’s tied at 123 with 33.6s left.
Now they need a score + a stop. – 9:29 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Wizards have not been happy with official #42 Eric Lewis all night and I don’t blame them. Questionable foul calls are one thing, but to give Chris Duarte a timeout after he slips in the Wizards corner and KCP ties him up, sheesh. KCP had more words for Lewis into the timeout. – 9:16 PM

Beal is good and all but he was just blocking Raul Neto

Wizards scored 98pts in a 15-point win over the Raptors to start the season.
They have 106 entering the 4th tonight, and 10-point lead on the Pacers. Both teams shooting 53%+.
Myles Turner needs two points to top his career high from five years ago. – 8:59 PM

Would love Wes Unseld Jr. to challenge the call instead of just giving the ref an earful. Raul Neto got absolutely walloped by Domantas Sabonis on the screen. – 8:58 PM

Nearly through three quarters, the reserves account for 14 of 92 points. – 8:51 PM

Corey Kispert and Montrezl Harrell have a communication on pick and roll coverage. Both look at each other frustrated. Wes Unseld Jr. gives them the talk signal with his hand. – 8:49 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers didn’t need Turner to take that 3 fading to his left, but can’t I say I blame him. He’s feeling it, and doing it all at both ends.
He’s three points shy of his career high, 31.
It’s been a shootout; Pacers have made 11 3s, but Wizards have sank 13. Kuzma made his first 4 – 8:46 PM

Pacers and Wizards tied 73-73 at halftime. Nobody could miss down the stretch of that half. Insane offensive efficiency from both teams.
Turner and Sabonis have combined for 40 points. Fun game. Both teams combined are 20/30 from deep. – 8:14 PM
Ava Wallace @avarwallace
That’s a lotta points. All tied up 73-73 at halftime. Wizards are a smooth 10-13 from three.
Dinwiddie: 21p
Bertans: 11p
Turner 24p – 8:14 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Wizards were a miserable 5-27 (18.5%) from 3 in the season opener vs. Raptors, but already 10-13 (76.9%) from 3 in the home opener vs. Pacers – 8:14 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Chris Duarte nails a 3-pointer to end the half, evens the score at 73.
But the Pacers defense has been the issue. Wizards shooting 61% and have only 3TOs. … So two straight 73+ first halves from the Pacers.
Turner is 9 for 10 with 24pts. Duarte has 10. – 8:13 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
It’s 73-73 at the half… not much defense. Wiz are shooting 61.4%, Pacers 57.4%. Turner has 24, Dinwiddie has 21. – 8:13 PM

Wizards and Pacers are tied at 73 at halftime and this feels very much like season – 8:13 PM

Kentucky freshman TyTy Washington. I think I am gonna regret not having this kid on one of my Preseason All-American teams.
Versatile combo guard who plays beyond his years. The word everyone has mentioned to me about him? “Poise.” pic.twitter.com/2C3VMLXRqh6:45 PM

Pacers not that good — Be physical with Sabonis and he’ll take himself out the game (big test for Gaff/Trez).
Defend the three point line.
Simple right? – 6:30 PM

Most seem to agree that depth is a strength for the Wizards this season. Having Bradley Beal out against a playoff-caliber Pacers team will be an excellent test for that theory. – 6:27 PM

PMers: the Wizards unveiled a bust of Wes Unseld, Sr., at Capital One Arena Thursday-a stark reminder of the greatness of the franchise’s best player, and how long it’s been since the Wizards/Bullets have been as relevant. In @TheAthletic: bit.ly/30GVSOm5:00 PM

Recently claimed off waivers, two-way player Joel Ayayi is in the building for the Wizards.
I doubt he is active as not to use up his limited number of days available to the team, but means his development work has started. – 4:56 PM

Bradley Beal took a shot to the family jewels late in the opener (really no reason for him to be in the game), not sure if that is related to what the team is calling a right hip contusion (bruise) that has him questionable for the home opener pic.twitter.com/erm7yzLW102:27 PM
