(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Pacers made it a clean sweep on their three-game homestand as they topped a short-handed Memphis Grizzlies squad 105-101.

Bojan Bogdanovic and Darren Collison led Indiana with 21 points each while Myles Turner had a 15 point and 11 rebound double-double and knocked down a pair of free throws in the final 34 seconds to seal the game for the Pacers. Turner also added three blocks and said despite only having nine players available, the Grizzlies put up a fight.

"You have to commend them with the way they played. But at the same time, we were able to put our foot down, put our foot on the gas, get going from the jump on a team like that. It's good to get this win, but you want to build off this one and learn from it as well."

All five Pacers starters scored in double figures and the Blue & Gold racked up 16 steals.

The Pacers hit the road on Friday when they visit the Charlotte Hornets.

Head coach Nate McMillan announced that he will not be at Thursday's practice or be at Friday's game due to personal reasons but would return in time for Saturday's game against the 76ers. Assistant coach Dan Burke will take over in McMillan's absence.
