Pacers final score: Pacers cruise over Grizzles 95-79

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Indiana continues their undefeated start with a win over Memphis behind 23 points from Paul George and a Lance Stephenson triple-double.

Unlike most of the season, where the Indiana Pacers have had to fight their way back from a halftime deficit, Indiana completed a near wire-to-wire victory against the Memphis Grizzlies, extending their franchise best start to 8-0. Memphis had an early 3-2 lead, but it was all Indiana after that. When the Pacers put the jets on for the third quarter, they were able to close the game out in the fourth for the victory. The Pacers shot nearly 49% for the game and had six players reach double figures, led by Paul George, who had 23.

Lance Stephenson completed his first career triple-double with 13 points, 11 rebounds, and 12 assists. George Hill had 13 and David West 10 for the starters. Off the bench, Luis Scola scored 12 and Ian Mahinmi had 10 points including 6-6 from the free throw line. The Pacers dominated the glass, out-rebounding Memphis by 13 and were able to force eight second half turnovers that they turned into 12 points. Roy Hibbert had just three points, but seven rebounds and five blocks. The Pacers held Memphis to 41% shooting and were led by Marc Gasol with 15.
