Halftime score: Pacers lead Celtics 52-37

The Indiana Pacers used an exciting second quarter run to break a 23-23 tie, outscoring Boston Celtics 24-5 behind exceptional second unit play. Boston mounted a quick run to cut the lead to 13 before a Paul George layup put the halftime advantage at 15. The Pacers assisted on 17 of their 21 field goals, led by Lance Stephenson, who had six, dishing to everyone with flash, including finding Danny Granger for a pair of three pointers to give him six points.

Roy Hibbert was the only Pacer in double figures with 13, going 6-8 from the floor, but struggled at the free throw line, going 1-4. Free throw shooting at 7-13 has been the only real knock on Indiana's effort tonight. They shot 51% from the floor while holding Boston to 37.5%. All nine Pacers scored in the first half, with everyone except Ian Mahinmi getting multiple buckets. Avery Bradley leads Boston with nine in Brad Stevens' return to Indianapolis.
