After a fluid first quarter where the Indiana Pacers scored 32 and led by double digits, Indiana had their offensive rhythm shaken, scoring just 15 to hold a 47-40 lead over the Chicago Bulls. Indiana struggled in the second with ball control, committing 13 turnovers in the first half, while having four shots blocked in the quarter. Chicago gave extended time off to their starters, but it didn't allow Indiana to open the game up, instead, allowing Chicago to pull within seven at half.
David West is one of three Pacers in double figures with 12, getting 10 from Roy Hibbert and George Hill. The bench has just four points on 1-8 shooting. Joakim Noah leads the Bulls with eight points.
