The Indiana Pacers have not had a good season, but in their last two games they have absolutely shocked the entire NBA. 

First, they beat the Los Angeles Lakers on the road on Wednesday night, and then on the second night of a back-to-back they beat the Golden State Warriors in overtime 121-117 in Golden State. 

Yet, that is not even the craziest part. 

They beat a Warriors team with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, while on the second night of a back-to-back, and were basically without their entire starting lineup.

Malcolm Brogdon, Domantas Sabonis, Myles Turner and Caris LeVert were all ruled out for the game. 

Rookie Chris Duarte led the way for the team with 27 points, but it was a total team effort with an impressive seven players scoring in double-digits. 

They also would have never even got to an overtime without the clutch shot from Justin Holiday (see tweet below from Bleacher Report). 

The Pacers will take their winning streak into Arizona when they play the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night. 

They are now 16-29 on the season in 45 games played, and are the 13th seed in the Eastern Conference.
