Paul George led the way early for the Indiana Pacers, scoring 14 first half points in a big bounce back against the Chicago Bulls. Unfortunately, he hasn't gotten much help offensively, with the Pacers as a team shooting 31.6%, George's six field goals half of the team's total shots for the game. Fouls, turnovers, and a dose of defense have hampered the flow of the game on both ends, creating an ugly slugfest of a game.
George had six rebounds to go with his 14 points, with George Hill pitching in with six points on 2-8 shooting. Luol Deng leads the Bulls with nine points. The Pacers have taken 13 trips to the line, cashing in on 10 FTs.
