Paul George broke out of his slump in a big way, scoring a game high 34 points, carrying the Indiana Pacers on his back for the 80-76 win over the Chicago Bulls. George played well out of the gate, scoring 14 first half points, but attacked relentlessly in the second half. The Pacers completed their four game road trip with a 3-1 record, improving their overall record to 9-9 on the year, sitting in a three-way tie atop the Central Division.

The Pacers struggled offensively, but thanks to George, as well as a nice third quarter from Roy Hibbert as part of his 10 & 11 double double, were able to build a nine-point lead in the third that Nate Robinson helped erase. But George played big in the fourth quarter, giving the Pacers the go-ahead bucket, a Roy Hibbert block, and David West icing free throws sealing the win.
