George Hill had a rough Game 1 for the Pacers — 2-of-9 shooting for five points with three turnovers.

Plus, he sprained his big toe.

I’m serious, he’s getting treatment and everything. The news comes from the twitter account of Mark Montieth of Pacers.com.

He’s not missing Game 2 for this. But the Pacers are going to need much better games out of him and Lance Stephenson if they are going to even the series. They need a few more things than that, too, but if Hill is slowed a little by this and can’t defend well off the pick-and-roll or if his shot is still off it’s going to be much bigger mountain for the Pacers to climb.
