NBA Playoffs final score: Pacers, Roy Hibbert down Wizards 86-82

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Roy Hibbert had 28 points and nine rebounds as the Pacers close out the Wizards at home to tie the series at 1-1. George Hill had 14 and Lance Stephenson had 12.

The Indiana Pacers showed much better energy tonight in Game 2 against the Washington Wizards, getting immediate help from Roy Hibbert, who was a dominant force throughout the game. Despite Indiana playing well, the Wizards still led at halftime by two. Indiana finally broke through in the third quarter to take a slight four point lead into the fourth. The Wizards played well early in the fourth, taking a three quarter lead with five minutes to go, but Indiana scored on the next four possessions to go up by three.

Bad decisions by Washington helped put Indiana in a favorable position down the stretch as a huge strip of John Wall by George Hill turned into a huge late shot clock step back jumper by Lance Stephenson as the Pacers win Game 2 to tie the series at 1-1 heading to Washington.

Hibbert was a monster, scoring 28 points on 10-13 shooting and pulling in nine rebounds and two blocks. George Hill scored 14, proving active throughout the night while holding John Wall to six points on 2-13 shooting. Lance Stephenson missed his first nine shots, but hit his last three to score 12 points, with seven rebounds and five assists. Marcin Gortat led the Wizards with 21.
