Pacers Final Score: Pacers close out Pistons 88-77

USA TODAY Sports

The Indiana Pacers were without Roy Hibbert for the second half, but managed to pull out the win against the Pistons

On a second night of a back-to-back, losing Roy Hibbert with a bruised left thigh just before half, and shooting under 30% from three point range, the Indiana Pacers rode their defense in the fourth quarter to close out the Detroit Pistons. The Pacers were able to put away the scrappy Pistons by holding them scoreless for a six-minute stretch in the fourth quarter, while scoring 11 themselves across that stretch.

David West carried the Pacers in the fourth quarter, scoring 13 of his game high 23 points in the final period. George Hill had 18 on 5-7 shooting with seven assists. Paul George was the latest Pacer to flirt in triple-double territory on a 15/8/8 night, adding in four steals. Tyler Hansbrough was big off the bench with 11 points and six boards. The win gives Indiana their first three-game winning streak of the year.
