Pacers' Watson makes noise off bench

Former Tennessee Volunteer basketball player CJ Watson (known by his Twitter handle @Quietstorm_32) has made his presence known in his first season with the Indiana Pacers.

Just last Friday, Watson scored 16 points off the bench in a 93-66 win over Washington.

"Just a solid player," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "He's reliable in a league where some guys are not reliable. When you can bring a guy off the bench that can go 6-for-6, that's a big lift. Just a great performance."
