After an offensive first half where the Indiana Pacers scored 58 points on 56% shooting, it was almost expected they'd still hover in the 90's by the time the game wound down, and tonight was no different. The second half struggles of the Pacers were accented by poor turnovers and poor free throw shooting, but the Phoenix Suns were anything but mistake free themselves, allowing the Pacers to hold on for their fourth straight win.
George Hill had a game high 22 for Indiana on 9-13 shooting as one of two Pacers who ended the night above 50% shooting. Five Pacers had double figures, including Tyler Hansbrough off the bench with 12 points. David West hit some big shots late as usual as part of his 14 & 7 effort, with Roy Hibbert getting a season high 14 rebounds to go with eight points. Paul George had 15 and Lance Stephenson had 10 points, nine rebounds, and five steals.
