Pacers final score: Pacers drop against Bulls 89-77

New, comments

Paul George had 22 and George Hill had 17, but the Indiana offense had no life as the Pacers can't come back from a third quarter Chicago run with Indiana dropping their second straight.

After an ugly first half offensively, the Chicago Bulls opened up, scoring 56 second half points, more than enough against the Indiana Pacers continued their woeful offensive outing, scoring just 77 points on the night on 37% shooting. The Pacers took a lead into the half at 34-33, but a 12-0 Bulls run in the third pushed the game into double figures. Despite numerous pushes by the Pacers, they just couldn't string together enough stops or get any consistent offensive to make it more than a six point game.

Paul George led the Pacers with 22 points, but was just 8-22 from the floor. He did have seven rebounds and four steals. George Hill scored 17 on 6-10 shooting, leading the team in assists with four along with David West, who had 12 points and seven rebounds. Taj Gibson scored 23 off the bench to lead Chicago, who shot 41.7% with 11 extra shot attempts.
