The Indiana Pacers came up big late against the Los Angeles Lakers, using a 10-2 run in the final three minutes to snap the Lakers’ 14-game road winning streak. The Pacers overcame an early 10-point deficit, eventually taking the lead in the third quarter. The teams would trade blows throughout the second half, with the Lakers going up 100-95 with 3:28 remaining.
The Pacers remained composed, thanks in large part to Malcolm Brogdon, who scored the next five for the Pacers, setting up big stops defensively to help the Pacers secure the 105-102 victory.
Domantas Sabonis led the way with 26 points and 10 rebounds as one of six double figure scorers. Myles Turner finished with 16 points and two blocks. Brogdon had 14, eight in the final quarter. T.J. Warren reached double figures with 12 second half points and the Pacers backup backcourt of Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell changed the outlook of the game with 11 and 10 points respectively.
The Pacers extend their winning streak to four games and will host the Sacramento Kings on Friday.
