The Pacers made 10 of their 22 three-pointers in the game and outrebounded the Wizards 40-36 on the night.
It was a very close game in the first quarter, but the Wizards took off in the second and led 55-38 going into the second half. Indiana turned up the pressure in the third quarter and were able to cut Washington's lead down to just one going into the fourth quarter. After some back-and-forth play in the final period, the Pacers made some key stops down the stretch to hold on for their second straight road win.

Al Harrington came off of the bench for Washington to score 11 points and grab six boards in 23 minutes on the floor. All-Star John Wall seemed off all night and shot just 4-for-11 from the floor before finishing with 12 points and seven assists.
