Indiana ran away from Charlotte in the second and third quarters to snap a two game skid and move past Charlotte for 10th in the East.

The Indiana Pacers got some good vibrations in a blowout win over the Charlotte Hornets, snapping their two game skid and getting them some brief life in the postseason race. The Pacers outscored Charlotte 48-22 in the second and third quarters, with the Hornets shooting 2-21 in the third, scoring nine.

Indiana didn't get big contributions, but didn't need them, especially from George Hill, who only had four points on 2-11 shooting. The Pacers were led by Rodney Stuckey (15) and C.J. Watson (13) off the bench. Much is left to be decided in terms of how things shake out between opponents playing for the Eastern Conference Playoffs, but Indiana can't make up ground without wins, something they did tonight.
