(Indianapolis, IN) - Paul George scored 22 points and grabbed eight boards as the Indiana Pacers held off the Portland Trailblazers, 99-92 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse last night.
George scored 14 in the second half and was productive for the second straight game after Tuesday's 34 point outburst against the Chicago Bulls.

George Hill's 18 points helped Indiana move above five-hundred for the first time since November 3rd and David West contributed 16 points and 10 rebounds.
Damien Lillard led all scorers with 23 points for the 8-11 Trailblazers.
The Pacers are 10-9 on-the-season and have won four of their last five games.
They host the 9-10 Denver Nuggets Friday night.
