Pacers final score: Pacers outwork Clippers 106-92

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Paul George scored 36 points to lead Indiana to a confident win over the Clippers. Lance Stephenson had 22.

The Indiana Pacers found themselves in a dicey situation when the Los Angeles Clippers cut the Indiana lead to 81-72 early in the fourth quarter. The Pacers put themselves in control of the game with a 15-0 run in the first quarter that allowed them to go up 16 at the break, but David West was ejected after hitting Blake Griffin in the head after the halftime buzzer sounded.

The loss of West was slowly felt over the third quarter as the Clippers cut a 20-point deficit in half heading into the fourth quarter, bringing it to within single digits early in the fourth. The Pacers, on the rope, responded with a backbreaking 10-0 run fueled by Lance Stephenson and Paul George, who put the Pacers on their back to close out their 32nd win.

George led the Pacers with 36 points on a lethal 12-17 shooting (5-6 from three point range) with three steals and six rebounds. Lance Stephenson followed with 22 points, 12 rebounds, and seven assists. Roy Hibbert opened the night with five blocks, scoring just four, but pulling in 11 rebounds. Danny Granger played well off the bench against Blake Griffin in the second half, scoring 12 points, while Griffin led the Clippers with 19 on 6-18 shooting.
