(Oakland, CA) - The Indiana Pacers extended their current winning streak to five games with a 102-94 victory over the Golden State Warriors.
Paul George, who was held scoreless in last year's contest at Oracle Arena, led the Pacers with 23 points.
Indiana built a 20-point lead early in the third quarter and watched Golden State chip away.

The Pacers improve to a league-best 33-7. Game Two of their five-game western road trip is Wednesday night in Phoenix.
Earlier on Monday, George was named the Eastern Conference's Player of the Week.
The Pacers forward averaged 30-point-seven points in Indiana's wins over Sacramento, New York and the Los Angeles Clippers last week.
All three wins came at Bankers Life Fieldhouse where the Pacers improved to a league-best 21-1 at home.
