The Indiana Pacers got a boost from their top players when they needed it most to put themselves in position to beat the Houston Rockets in overtime on Sunday evening.

Danny Granger knocked down a pair of three-pointers midway through the fourth quarter to complete a 10-0 run by the Pacers and give them the lead and the swagger they needed to close out the win. Roy Hibbert followed up Granger's threes with six points of his own and from that point on the Pacers never trailed again. They tried a few times, but they held off the Rockets until Granger sealed up the W by not allowing Chandler Parsons' final shot anywhere near the rim.

The Pacers head home to take on the New York Knicks on Tuesday, one of ten remaining home games for the Pacers. They will also sprinkle in four individual road games so they won't be spending much time of the road for the remainder of the regular season.
