INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Paul George scored 30 points to help the Indiana Pacers hold on for a 112-104 win over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night.
Indiana nearly squandered a 20-point third-quarter lead, but held on thanks to five missed free throws from Andre Drummond in the game's final 3:30. Leading 104-100 with just more than a minute to play, Monta Ellis and George Hill hit the two shots Indiana needed to seal the win.
Reggie Jackson led Detroit with 26 points. Anthony Tolliver scored a season-high 17 points. Drummond finished with 10 points and 13 rebounds for his 43rd double-double through 52 games.
George Hill scored 17 points and Myles Turner added 16 for the Pacers.
