Halftime score: Pacers lead Wizards 43-36

For as good as the Pacers played in the first quarter, things were reversed for the second, which isn't exactly a surprise. The Pacers used a 17-2 run to close the first quarter strong, putting them up 28-14 after the quarter. But things flipped on a predictably muddy second quarter, as the Washington Wizards ran off a 10-0 run of their own to keep the game within single digits. The one constant Indiana had was on the defensive end, forcing 11 Washington turnovers, on eight steals. The turnovers led to 14 Pacers points, which helped them work through the first half in style.

The Pacers shot just 36%, but did get a pair of three pointers from Solomon Hill and were led by George Hill, who had 10 points, but on just 4-12 shooting. Paul George had nine first quarter points and Lance Stephenson has six rebounds and four assists. The Pacers have done a tremendous job limiting John Wall to just two points on 1-7 shooting, but steady scoring from Martell Webster, Trevor Ariza, and Eric Maynor has kept Washington in the game.
