It's the one area the Indiana Pacers have been constantly criticized about for years. No matter how good their balanced scoring attack is, analysts have knocked them for not having a go-to player.

The Pacers didn't do anything to prove them wrong when their best scorer -- Danny Granger -- crumbled down the stretch of their 81-77 loss to the Orlando Magic in Game 1 of their best-of-seven first-round playoff series Saturday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

"It was about making shots and executing our shots at crunch time, two things we've done at a high level all year," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "We'll be fine without your quote-unquote go-to guy."
