The Indiana Pacers put the New York Knicks down early and held off a fourth quarter run to grab their third straight win. The Pacers led by as many as 28 early in the fourth quarter, but the Knicks would trim the lead to as close as 16, but a C.J. Miles three would halt the New York run as Indiana finished undefeated in the FloJo jerseys this season.

George Hill led five double figure scorers with 20 points to go with six rebounds, five assists, and three steals. Roy Hibbert had an 11 point, 11 rebound double double on a night the Pacers outrebounded New York by 20. In his second game back, Paul George had 10 points on 2-7 shooting. George got to the line tonight, taking multiple hits to go down, popping up after each one.

Indiana's win moves them back into 9th place, but they still remain a game out as Boston won tonight. Brooklyn fell late to Atlanta, drawing the Pacers to within a game of Brooklyn as well as the 7th seed comes back in play for Indiana with four games remaining.
