After getting destroyed in the first half and finding themselves down 21 in the third quarter, the Indiana Pacers came all the way back to defeat the Charlotte Hornets on a George Hill game winner. The Pacers took a two point lead late, but Marvin Williams would hit a big three to give Charlotte a one point edge, only for Hill to put in the game winner with five seconds left on the clock.

It was the play of the bench, led by C.J. Watson (22) and Luis Scola (15) that lifted Indiana to the win, giving the Pacers their first three game winning streak of the season. David West and Rodney Stuckey each scored 15 in starting roles and Hill scored 11.
