Indiana Pacers player C.J. Watson has finally stepped up and played a good game Wednesday night.
While playing the Charlotte Bobcats, Watson hit five 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and finished with a season-high 18 points. The Pacers went on to win their fifth straight victory 99-74.
“I have been struggling and I knew I’d been struggling,” Wilson said. “But I just stayed in the gym, stayed focused and just kept working and stayed confident. I tried to go out there, be aggressive and take what the game gave me.”
Watson only hit 6 of 29 3-pointers this season coming into the game against Charlotte. He made 6 out of 8 against the Bobcats.
“I think he was just looking for it and we drew some plays up for him,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. ”One of them was in transition and we got him one early when we got him a corner flare. Sometimes, when you hit the first shot, it changes your momentum of the game. He’d been struggling with his shot but he’s kept working.”
