The Indiana Pacers pieced together a dominate fourth quarter to put away the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls had overcame an 11-point Pacers lead in the third quarter to tie the game heading into the fourth, taking a two point lead to open the fourth. Indiana responded with seven straight to go up five, holding Chicago at bay as the Pacers outscored the Bulls 32-18 in the fourth.

Ian Mahinmi led the Pacers with a 14 point, 11 rebound double double, surviving the Hack-a-Ian strategy by knocking down five of his last six free throw attempts. Solomon Hill led Indiana in scoring with 16 points, getting help from C.J. Miles and David West, who each had 10. Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Watson scored 12 & 11 off the bench. The Pacers completed a 4-0 home stand to win their fourth straight game for the first time this season.
