The Pacers won the game in blow out fashion by a score of 97-64.
The Pacers held the former number two overall pick (Beasley) by the Miami Heat in 2009 to just nine points on just 3/9 shooting from the field.
He was also tied for a game-low +/- of -25.
Beasley has career averages of 12.4 points and 4.7 rebounds in 609 career games with the Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat.
