Pacers Final Score: Pacers blow out Pistons 98-79

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Indiana rebounded from three straight losses at home with a win over Detroit.

Despite a pair of solid Detroit Pistons stretches that erased double-digit Indiana Pacers leads, the Pacers had the game well in hand thanks to their own positive stretches of defense. The Pacers struggled early with interior defense, but made impressive strides in limiting the Pistons in the second quarter and at times in the second half. It certainly helped the Pacers were sending Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond to the free throw line, who shot a combined 4-16 to overshadow their own positive impacts.

The Pacers were led by Lance Stephenson's first career double double of 12 points and 11 rebounds with five assists, leading the Pacers in an 18-2 run to close the first half. Six Pacers reached double figures, led by Roy Hibbert with 18 and 11. George Hill had 15 on 6-8 shooting. The win is Indiana's 12th straight home win.
