(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Pacers turned-in another efficient performance without David West on the floor in defeating the Orlando Magic, 95-73 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse Tuesday night.
Tyler Hansbrough recorded his second straight double-double at power forward, scoring 14 points and grabbing 14 rebounds, including nine on the offensive glass, in substitution of West.
Head Coach Frank Vogel said Tuesday that West might return to the lineup this weekend after missing two games with a lower back sprain.
Indiana overcame a sluggish beginning to the first quarter in dispatching Orlando for the second time this season and held the opposition to 32-percent shooting from the field.
Gerald Green had 15 points off the bench and has made 7 of 13, 3-point attempts in his last two games.
Paul George led all scorers 19 points and George Hill had 14 points and seven rebounds.
Indiana have the second best record in the Eastern Conference at 42-26 and play again Friday night against the Milwaukee Bucks.
