New, comments

The Pacers were short-handed, but were able to come together late for a win against Charlotte.

USA TODAY Sports

Paul George was sidelined in tonight's game between the Indiana Pacers and Charlotte Bobcats with the flu, and it looked like it was going to be a huge issue when the team struggled shooting inside the three point arc in the first half, missing their first 11 shots, and falling behind 10-1 to start the game. The Pacers struggled in transition, getting outscored 18-8 in the game, but made use of extra possessions on 17 offensive rebounds and 11 three point field goals.

David West led the way with a triple-double of 14 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists. The bench was a big factor, led by D.J. Augustin with 18 points, and Ian Mahinmi, who had five points and eight rebounds. George Hill led the Pacers with 19, and Lance Stephenson had a season high of 17. Dominic McGuire made his Pacers debut in the starting lineup, going scoreless in seven minutes.
