(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Pacers rebounded from their loss to the Knicks on Tuesday with a decisive 98-77 win over the Charlotte Hornets.
Paul George went on a 39-point tear, including six 3-pointers, while Monta Ellis added 16 points off the bench. George and Ellis were the only two Pacers to score in double-figures, but it was enough.
"Things came easy because of the offensive flow," George said. "Also, playing a team for the fourth time, I knew how they were going to guard me and I tried to take advantage of that."
Indiana shot 53.4 percent from the field and just under 43 percent from 3-point range. They continued to struggle with turnovers (14) but they out-rebounded Charlotte 42-30.
The Pacers have a couple of days to relax and reset until they visit the Toronto Raptors on Sunday evening.
