It was an especially memorable evening for siblings Justin and Aaron Holiday, with both guys coming up big for the Pacers while making a bit of history in the process:

Aaron was the best player on the court for the Pacers on the evening, logging a career-high 24 points (on 10-of-19 shooting), four 3-pointers, six rebounds, 13 assists (also a career-best mark), and just two turnovers in 31 minutes of play. The 23-year-old took full advantage of the absence of Indiana's starting point guard, Malcolm Brogdon, who was dealing with a back issue. Aaron definitely stepped it up when his number was called and came up with unquestionably the best game of his young career.
For his part, older brother Justin was almost as good as his younger sibling, logging 20 points (on 6-of-11 shooting), four 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists, and a couple of steals in 32 minutes of play. He too was one of the beneficiaries of the myriad injuries for the Pacers, who were also missing the services of Jeremy Lamb and T.J. McConnell on the evening.
Even despite numerous injuries this season, Indiana has managed to get off to an impressive 8-6 start. Don't forget that Victor Oladipo will also be back sometime in the near future. If he comes back and finds his form, the Pacers will be dangerous.
