A close game for much of the night, Indiana closed strong against Phoenix, leading to a 15-point win. Paul George led the Pacers with 25 points. Myles Turner scored 20 and Jeff Teague had 19.
The Indiana Pacers got by the Phoenix Suns in large part due to a 9-0 run halfway through the fourth quarter that finally gave the Pacers the separation they needed to seal the victory. Despite the 109-94 final, the first 41 minutes was a back-and-forth affair where neither team was able to build or maintain any leads.
