The Detroit Pistons had their greatest offensive output of the season, scoring a season best 119, leaving the Indiana Pacers searching for answers throughout the night. Indiana's own offense was successful enough; they scored 109 points on 50.6% shooting, but 56 points in the paint and 10 three pointers fueled an easy and effective offensive attack for Detroit, shooting 54.7% themselves, a season best.
Roy Hibbert led the Pacers with 19 points in just 23 minutes, but fouled out halfway through the third, hampering the Indiana defense. Luis Scola, Solomon Hill, and C.J. Watson each scored 14 with George Hill reaching double figures once again with 13 points. Indiana had 18 turnovers, getting outscored 22-9 in points off turnovers and allowing 17 fast break points to Detroit.
