Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Paul George had 30 and Evan Turner had 20 as the Pacers erase a 25-point deficit to down Detroit in overtime.

They needed an extra five minutes, but the Indiana Pacers successfully erased a 25-point deficit against the Detroit Pistons for their biggest comeback of the year, downing Detroit 112-104 in overtime. The Pacers looked awful in the first half, with the Pistons getting easy buckets and fast break points at will, jumping ahead by 25. Indiana cut the lead to 19 by halftime, and outscored Detroit 32-19 in the third quarter to pull within six.

Indiana jumped ahead at the 6:43 mark of the fourth quarter, but struggled keeping the lead with the game heading into overtime tied at 100-100. The Indiana defense was a force in OT as they took control of the game, pulling away for the impressive win. Paul George led the way with 30 points, but 40 bench points helped Indiana in the comeback, led by Evan Turner with 20 and Andrew Bynum with 15. David West closed strong in the second half and OT, scoring 15 on the night.
