Another strong half from Tyler Hansbrough leads the Indiana Pacers in a back and forth battle against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Pacers hold the advantage at the break shooting 51%, but Milwaukee has stayed alive and well despite 36% shooting grabbing 15 offensive rebounds leading to 20 extra shots. The Bucks also have played a much cleaner game, with only four first half turnovers, but the Pacers have converted those into nine points.
The Milwaukee bigs are causing all sorts of problems for Indiana, Samuel Dalembert has a double double and Larry Sanders has 11 rebounds. Hansbrough leads the Pacers with 11 points and six boards, with help from Paul George, who has nine, and Ian Mahinmi off the bench with seven.
