The Indiana Pacers saw a 17-point lead dwindle to seven late in the fourth quarter when Indiana went on a four minute scoring drought that gave the Bulls life late. Chris Copeland and Solomon Hill would respond on consecutive trips to help seal the game away and put Indiana back into the win column to complete a 3-1 week, rebounding well after their tough loss to Denver last night with an impressive win over the Bulls on the road.
Indiana had three 21-point scorers, led in a big way by Luis Scola, who had 21 points and 11 rebounds on a scorching 10-12 shooting. Solomon Hill also had a double double of 21 points and 12 rebounds. A.J. Price scored 21 as well, shooting 7-11 and coming up with a pair of big three pointers. Chris Copeland had three three pointers to score 13 points. The Pacers owned the glass, outrebounding Chicago by 12, shooting 48% for the night. Jimmy Butler had a career high 32 for the Bulls.
