Indiana used a big fourth quarter to blow out Charlotte.
Paul George posted his first career triple double in the Indiana Pacers' blowout win over the Charlotte Bobcats. George finished the game with 23 points, 12 rebounds, and 12 assists to become the third Pacer to post a triple double this season. George led the Pacers in the fourth quarter, turning a fairly close 10-point game into a rout with a lopsided fourth quarter, sending them into the All-Star break on a winning note.
Tyler Hansbrough started in David West's absence, sitting out with an eye injury, posting a 19 & 10 double double with the starters. Six Pacers reached double figures, including Jeff Pendergraph, scoring 10, reaching double figures for the second straight game. George Hill scored all 11 of his points in the second half, as Indiana outscored Charlotte 51-31 in the second half.
