The win strengthened their hold on the third spot in the East, and are now a game-and-a-half clear of the Cleveland Cavaliers, with only 14 games left on their schedule.

The game finished with a total of 192 points, which was 18 points below the projected point total of 210 points.
Thaddeus Young added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the surprising Pacers (40-28), who overcame an off shooting night by leading scorer Victor Oladipo to win their third straight and improve to a season-high 12 games over.500.
