Cleveland started hot, but Indiana positioned themselves with the second and third quarters, outscoring the Cavs 55-33. In the fourth quarter, the Cavaliers made a late 11-0 push to close the gap, but big plays late from Rodney Stuckey, David West, and Hill pushed Indiana into the win column.

The Cavs were short Kyrie Irving (shoulder) and LeBron James (rest), but Indiana did what they needed to do to come away with the win. The Pacers were led by George Hill, who had 15 points, 10 rebounds, and 12 assists to notch his first career triple-double. Rodney Stuckey led the Pacers with 19 points off the bench. C.J. Miles (13) and David West (12) also reached double figures.
