It's hard to top the New Palestine-Triton Central rivalry in Indiana high school hoops but Boomer, the Indiana Pacers mascot, just upped the ante. While the Pacers were on the road against the Warriors last night, Boomer paid a visit and put on a show those in attendance would not soon forget. Boomer pulled out the mascot calling card—the trampoline-assisted dunk—with a surprise twist at the end. Broken glass, everywhere.
