Last updated on Tuesday, November 11, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) The Indiana Pacers are back at .500 after defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder 107-99 at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Thunder built a 15-point lead early in the second quarter before Indiana used a 13-0 run to get the deficit down to two with 6:05 left in the half.

The game stayed close the rest of the way with the Pacers finally pulling away in the final two and a half minutes, closing with an 11-4 run.

TJ Ford led Indiana with 24 points and ten assists. Ford scored the Pacers' final seven points.

Danny Granger finished with 20 points and Jeff Foster added 15.

The balanced effort helped overcome a 37-point night from last season's NBA rookie of the year Kevin Durant as the Thunder lost their fourth game in a row.

The Pacers improve to 3-and-3 as they head to New Jersey for a rematch with the Nets on Wednesday night.

Indiana defeated the Nets 98-80 last Saturday night at the Fieldhouse.
