Pacers final score: Pacers beat Raptors 91-84

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Paul George and Roy Hibbert each scored 20 as the Pacers won big in the third quarter to improve to 6-0.

The Indiana Pacers haven't deviated from the script much this season, using a strong third quarter to help establish a win after falling behind at the break. The Toronto Raptors were in sync for the first quarter, dropping 32 on the Pacers with Rudy Gay scoring 14 of his 22 first half points. The defense for the Pacers was lights out in the middle periods, but Gay's second quarter helped keep Toronto ahead at the break.

In the second half, Paul George overcame his first half shooting struggles to score 17 and lead Indiana to a fourth quarter advantage they wouldn't relinquish. Roy Hibbert had his best game of the season scoring, getting 20 on 9-14 shooting to join George, who had 23 with eight rebounds, six rebounds, and a pair of steals. Hibbert had seven rebounds and two blocks added to his own total. George Hill returned to action tonight, helping in the first half as part of his 14 points with three three pointers. Lance Stephenson went out of the game in the first quarter with a bruised knee, but returned and played the second half, helping to energize the team with four assists. Gay finished with 30 for Toronto.
