The Indiana Pacers secured their third straight win with a (generally) solid fourth quarter outing against the Detroit Pistons. Indiana led 117-104 with two minutes later, but with the clock in their favor managed to hold off a furious Pistons rally that drew the game to within three points in the final 30 seconds.

Paul George reached 30 points for the third time in four games, scoring 32 points and getting to the line 10 times. Myles Turner and Jeff Teague each scored 17 and Teague had eight assists as part of Indiana’s 26 for the night. Monta Ellis was big off the bench, shooting 6-6 for 16 points. Kevin Seraphin had a season high 10 points with five rebounds.

The Pacers will host the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday.
