The Pacers extend their home winning streak to 14 with a win over division rival Chicago.
The Indiana Pacers had three 20-point scorers in a win over the Chicago Bulls that was defined by offense rather than the defense both teams are known for. The Pacers led nearly the entire way, but Marco Belinelli's big fourth quarter kept Chicago within striking distance before Paul George sunk a dagger three pointer to put the game on ice. The Pacers shot 52.7% as the season long struggles of Pacers offense has come to life, reaching at least 98 points in five straight games with four over 100.
David West led the Pacers with 29 points, 16 of those coming in the first half, having another solid game shooting, going 11-18 from the floor and grabbing nine boards. George Hill had a big night as well, shooting 7-10 for 22 points. Paul George had a 21 & 11 double double and Lance Stephenson was a big play maker for the Pacers at stretches, 15 points to go with five assists. The win puts the Pacers back on top of the division with the tiebreaker in their favor.
