Pacers Final Score: Pacers Hold Off Hornets 115-107 OT

Pat Lovell-US PRESSWIRE

The Indiana Pacers needed an offensive explosion to win against New Orleans, but set some records along the way.

The Indiana Pacers continued to claw and fight with the New Orleans Hornets, a Hornets team they couldn't stop on defense, a Hornets team that continued to hang around and find opportunities to keep the game alive, whether they were in the lead or storming back time and time again. The Hornets led by seven with four minutes left, but Paul George was on fire from deep, hitting a franchise record nine three pointers en route to his career high of 37.

It wasn't enough to put the Pacers in the win column without an OT period that Indiana ran out to a 10-0 start in. In the OT period, Roy Hibbert capped a historic night, landing his first career triple double, a 10 point, 11 rebound, and 11 block performance that is the Pacers' first franchise triple double since Jermaine O'Neal on January 22, 2003. All five starters reached double figures, George Hill had 16 points, seven assists, and six rebounds. The most important thing was Indiana winning their second straight game for the first time all season, improving to 6-7.
