Porter had been struggling in his previous four games before Wednesday, missing 20 of 29 attempts. But he refused to label the stretch a slump. Porter also refused to cast the blame on a previously undisclosed right foot pain that he has quietly been managing. “It was nothing serious. Nothing to worry about,” Porter said. “I didn’t miss a game or anything for it but it definitely was a nagging injury that I was able to treat and feel a lot better.”

My best intel right now is if the Lakers called Indiana right now and said ‘Both picks unprotected,’ the Pacers would do that deal, would probably do that deal.”
