The Indiana Pacers got plays down the stretch to help them pull out a win against the Memphis Grizzlies in a low scoring, poor shooting affair with both teams in the 36% shooting range. With the regular season inching closer by the day, the intensity the Pacers lacked last night in their loss in Orlando was in full bloom in front of the home crowd. The Pacers had to climb out of a early fourth quarter hole to grab the win, with excitement shown from Roy Hibbert and Gerald Green looking to make winning plays.
Green led all scorers with 18, followed by Roy Hibbert's 14 point, 10 rebound double double. Ian Mahinmi added 13 off the bench with Tyler Hansbrough putting forth another solid game with 8 points and 13 points. Paul George continues to struggle with his shooting, going just 4-14, but finishing with 14 points. Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol led the way for the Grizzlies off the bench, with plenty of notable plays in the fourth quarter.
The Pacers return to action on Tuesday when they travel to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers.
