The Indiana Pacers were caught in a game of runs with the Golden State Warriors, but despite a special night from Stephen Curry, David West and the Pacers were too much down the stretch, holding the Warriors at arms' length in the fourth quarter to cap their fifth straight win.
Even with the strong Indiana effort, the story to come from the game will revolve around the availability of Roy Hibbert for Thursday's game, as a couple of shoves between him and David Lee escalated with Hibbert and Curry dusting up, leading to Hibbert's ejection, and a possible suspension.
The Pacers had three 20-point scorers, led by West, who had 28 on 12-16 shooting. George Hill was big in the first half on a hot 9-14 shooting, scoring 23 with seven assists. Paul George had 21 & 11 as part of his double double. Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 38, shooting 14-20 from the field.
