Indiana rebounded from a tough loss in Boston with their first win of the year over Milwaukee.
The Indiana Pacers found their way back into the win column with a dominating second half, holding the Milwaukee Bucks to 33 second half points, and holding them under 40% shooting. Defense was a small issue in the first halfwhen they allowed 47 points, but Milwaukee got a lot of big shots to go in in the second quarter. Indiana ratcheted it up in the third quarter, and carried it over to lead a big double-digit win.
Roy Hibbert led the Pacers with 20 points and 15 rebounds, 11 of them offensive, with five blocks. George Hill returned to the lineup with 14. Lance Stephenson had 10 on 5-8 shooting. The bench played some valuable minutes, getting nine points from Tyler Hansbrough and eight from D.J. Augustin. Orlando Johnson had seven.
