Pacers up 49-42 on Celtics at halftime

A pair of strong closes to the first and second quarter have given the Indiana Pacers a seven point advantage at the end of the first half over the Boston Celtics. Indiana scored seven straight to close the first quarter, and then had a 9-2 run late in the second before letting up a last second layup. The late runs have helped mask a somewhat poor shooting effort that got just north of 40% to go with seven turnovers. The good news is that they've forced nine turnovers to lead the points off turnovers 13-6.

Indiana has dominated the paint inside, led by Roy Hibbert, who had a 12 & 10 double double in the first half. Paul George had 10 points with three steals, and Orlando Johnson returned to form with seven points off the bench. Kevin Garnett leads Boston with eight points, Avery Bradley and Jeff Green each have seven. Lance Stephenson helped change the complexion of the game late in the second quarter by pushing the tempo, scoring four points and grabbing three steals.
