Pacers final score: Pacers blank in 105-94 loss to Mavericks

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers had three 20-point scorers, but got just four bench points and committed 21 turnovers as they lose their fourth straight.

The Indiana Pacers dropped their fourth straight game in frustrating fashion, losing a third quarter lead as the Dallas Mavericks used a 23-7 run to jump ahead double figures. The Pacers fought back to within two in the fourth, but turnovers proved too big of a problem to overcome, allowing Dallas to come up with crucial swings throughout the night, as Monta Ellis closed the game out for Dallas late. Indiana had 21 turnovers, which led to 26 Dallas points, the Mavericks winning the points off turnover battle 26-7. Indiana got nothing from their bench, getting outscored 41-4 while allowing 15 offensive rebounds.

It was a minor miracle the game was even a game, but Indiana had little margin for error and it cost them in the end. The Pacers had three 20 point scorers, led by Paul George, who had 27, but was saddled with foul trouble all night. Lance Stephenson had 21 and George Hill had 20. David West struggled at just 2-9. Ellis had 20.
