The Indiana Pacers fought back from two double digit deficits against the Los Angeles Clippers, but couldn't come up with enough plays to get over the hump. The Pacers' starters in the first and third quarters dug Indiana into big holes, forcing the bench to continue their high level of play to push the Pacers back to within striking distance. Indiana cut a 20 point third quarter deficit to two, but ran out of offense in the final two minutes.
C.J. Miles continued his hot shooting from Monday with a season best 30 points with seven three pointers. Lavoy Allen and Luis Scola each put Indiana in position to win with double doubles. Allen had 14 points and 13 rebounds and Scola had 12 points and 14 rebounds as the Pacers bench scored 66. Rodney Stuckey and Chris Copeland each scored in double figures with 10.
