The Indiana Pacers held on late against the Houston Rockets, staging a fourth quarter comeback thanks to the efforts of Ian Mahinmi and Solomon Hill. Indiana led by 16 early in the third quarter, but found themselves in familiar territory down four in the fourth when Hill (five rebounds, two steals) and Mahinmi (19 points, 11 rebounds) willed Indiana to the win.

Paul George led the Pacers with 25 points with Monta Ellis scoring 23. Indiana pulled in 15 offensive rebounds, helping to seal the win. C.J. Miles led the bench with 10 points and Ty Lawson had his best game for the Pacers, scoring six points and dishing five assists in just under 14 minutes of game action. Indiana moves to 39-34 on the season, staying in 7th place with the win. They'll host the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday.
