The Indiana Pacers needed everything yet again to pull out a win, this time a much needed win to snap their six game road losing streak and get them a confidence boost. Indiana stormed out of the gate, leading by 19 before second quarter turnovers cut the lead in half. Another strong opening out of the half allowed the Pacers to balloon their lead up to 20 before more lackluster bench play gave the Wizards an 18-2 run.
In the fourth, the Wizards were able to pull within one, but huge plays down the stretch by David West (30 points, 8 rebounds, 4 blocks, 3 steals) and Roy Hibbert (20 pts, 12 reb, 4 blk, 3 ast) led the way for the Pacers for the win. George Hill struggled from the floor, but had 12 on 8-8 free throw shooting. Sam Young and Gerald Green each had nine off the bench.
