Update: Lawson produced only one point (0-1 FG, 1-2 FT), one rebound, and one assist across five minutes in Sunday's 89-84 Game 7 loss to the Raptors.
Analysis: Lawson played a bit role off the bench throughout the series, averaging 2.3 points, 1.4 assists, and one rebound over 10.4 minutes. After opening the regular season as the Rockets' starting point guard, Lawson's shooting struggles quickly resulted in him moving to a bench role, and eventually, dropping out of the team's rotation and getting waived on March 1. He didn't fare much better upon landing with the Pacers, and it looks like the 28-year-old's days an NBA starter could be over. Lawson's declining performance and his previous off-the-court issues may force him to settle for a short-term contract in free agency this offseason.
Lawson will serve a year on probation in a Denver drunken driving case after a judge on Tuesday rejected arguments that he needed to serve time in jail to learn a lesson.
The former Denver Nugget was arrested twice on drunken driving charges last year - first in Denver in January and then in Los Angeles in July. He also has two previous DUI arrests that don't count as prior offenses - one in North Carolina in 2008 for underage drinking and driving when he was 20 and another in 2011 in Missouri. Prosecutor Chris Curtis asked for Lawson to spend at least a month in jail because he said his behavior has not changed.
