Rudy Gay finished with 24 points, Mike Miller had 19 points and eleven rebounds and Mike Conley finished with seven points, eight assists, six rebounds and three steals as he returned to his hometown and made his first NBA start.

The Pacers shot a season-low 31-percent from the field in suffering their fifth-straight loss.

Mike Dunleavy led Indiana with 16 points with Troy Murphy adding ten points and 15 rebounds as the Pacers fall three games under .500 at 15-and-18.
