Pacers Pull Away From Hornets 105-96

Last updated on Tuesday, January 30, 2018

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Victor Oladipo’s game-high 25 points and some tight defense down the stretch lifted the Pacers to their fourth win in five games as they topped the Charlotte Hornets 105-96.

Myles Turner began to look like his old self as he added 22 points while Lance Stephenson's rebound and score with just over seven minutes remaining sparked Indiana for a 15-2 run.

"We had to be disciplined and I thought we did a better job, certainly in the fourth quarter, of defending without fouling and getting out and running, executing on the offensive end in the fourth quarter," Pacers coach Nate McMillan said.

The Pacers shot over 54 percent from the field and improved to 18-0 when shooting 50 percent or better this season.

The Blue and Gold try to make it a three-game sweep in their homestand on Wednesday when they host the Memphis Grizzlies.
