Niang’s Pacers fall to Fred Hoiberg’s Bulls

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

It appears not every Cyclone had a horrific fourth quarter on Saturday. Georges Niang had another impressive performance Saturday night for the Indiana Pacers in their 121-105 loss against Fred Hoiberg’s Chicago Bulls.

The former Cyclone played just 12 minutes against his former coach, but it didn’t limit his production. Niang tallied 16 points and 2 rebounds while going 4-6 from three point range.

Niang was coming off a less than stellar performance Thursday night, which oddly enough was also against the Chicago Bulls and Fred Hoiberg. After bouncing back with another solid performance, the forward is now averaging over 10 points per game while averaging just over 15 minutes per contest.

After the game, Niang and Hoiberg took a moment for a photo that is sure to bring a smile to the faces of many Cyclone fans.

Same dudes different towns! Good to see Coach Hoiberg and his family last night!

Niang and the Pacers will travel to Milwaukee on October 12th for a game against the Milwaukee Bucks. The game will start at 6:30 PM. Fred Hoiberg’s Bulls are in action this upcoming Friday against LeBron James and the defending NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers.
