(Los Angeles, CA) - The Indiana Pacers completed a four-game road sweep of the Western Conference Tuesday morning with a 109-106 win over the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center.
Roy Hibbert's late season revival continued with a 26-point night against the Western Conference contenders.
The 7'2" center is averaging nearly 21 points in his last six games after struggling with offensive consistency for most of the season.
The Clippers had erased a 16 point deficit in the fourth quarter when David West made a 19 foot fade-away jumper that gave Indiana a 4 point cushion with 48 seconds left in the game.
The Pacers made all eight free throw attempts in the closing seconds to clinch their eighth win in nine tries.
All-Star point guard, Chris Paul, was limited to 10 points on 2-12 shooting for Los Angeles.
Jamal Crawford led the Clippers with 25 points off the bench.
The Pacers have a half game lead on the New York Knicks for the second best record in the East at 48-27 and break until Friday when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder.
