The Indiana Pacers didn't look like the top team from the Eastern Conference the last time they played the Milwaukee Bucks after giving up a 17-point lead, but they turned up the pressure late and were able to pull off the 101-96 win. The Bucks made 12 of their 24 three-pointers in the game, but the Pacers were able to counteract that by making 19 of their 22 free throws.
Indiana got off to a great start and looked like they were going to blow the Bucks out when they entered the second quarter with a 30-15 lead. The Bucks fought back from 17 points down, though, and were able to outscore the Pacers 35-20 to tie it up before halftime. After the Bucks got up by as many as four points in the third quarter, Indiana was able to come back and take the lead for good.
Roy Hibbert was Indiana's best player on the night, scoring 24 points and adding 12 rebounds for yet another double-double. Lance Stephenson and Paul George had 18 points apiece for the Pacers in the win.
Bucks point guard Brandon Knight played well in the game, scoring 23 points and dishing out five assists in the loss. Power forward Khris Middleton scored 22 points and had three steals, while shooting guard O.J. Mayo came off the bench to contribute 14 points.
