NBA Playoffs halftime score: Wizards lead Pacers 45-43

The Indiana Pacers got a monster first half from Roy Hibbert, but a big second quarter from midrange for the Washington Wizards was enough to give them the halftime advantage in Game 2. The Pacers jumped out early in large part to Hibbert, who had 17 points, three rebounds, and two blocks, but Washington managed to fight back in thanks to their midrange game, shooting 7-10 in the second quarter outside of the paint.

George Hill and Paul George had six in quiet first halves to contend with a balanced Washington attack, with eight from Marcin Gortat and Nene. Bradley Beal has seven and John Wall has six points and four assists. Washington is shooting 47.6% and lead the rebounding battle by two.
