Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Paul George scored 27 points as the
Indiana Pacers got their post All-Star break schedule off to a roaring start
with a 125-91 trouncing of the New York Knicks from Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
George added eight rebounds while making good on 11-of-19 field goal attempts
in leading Indiana to its highest scoring output of the season. David West
contributed 18 points and nine boards to the rout, while Lance Stephenson
registered 14 points in a game the Pacers never trailed at any stage.
The win also moved Indiana within just a half-game of the slumping Knicks for
the second-best record in the Eastern Conference.
Tyson Chandler compiled 19 points and 11 rebounds for New York, which limped
into the break off consecutive home losses to the Los Angeles Clippers and
Toronto and mustered a subpar 33.7 shooting percentage against Indiana's
Carmelo Anthony went just 7-of-21 from the field in finishing with 15 points,
over 13 below his season average.
