NBA Game Summary - Chicago at Indiana



(Friday, March 21st)

Final Score: Indiana 91, Chicago 79

Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Paul George had a triple-double with 10 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists and the Indiana Pacers defeated the Chicago Bulls, 91-79, on Friday night.

Roy Hibbert supplied 12 points and 11 boards, while Lance Stephenson added 15 points for Indiana, which has won five of its last six games.

"We really got back to playing some defense," said George. "I thought we did a great job of boxing out, not allowing second chance baskets."

D.J. Augustin and Jimmy Butler netted 17 points apiece and Joakim Noah provided 12 points, 13 rebounds, six assists and four steals for the Bulls, who have dropped two of their last three.

"They're a good defensive team," said Noah. "You've got to give them credit where credit is due. For us, personally, we could do a few things better."

Indiana led 44-43 at the break but used a 17-0 run in the early stages of the third to pull away. Stephenson had nine points during the surge, which he capped with a jumper to extend the margin to 63-45.

The Pacers took a 75-62 cushion into the fourth, where Mike Dunleavy finished off a 7-2 Chicago flurry to get it within 77-69 with 9:30 to play.

The Bulls, though, never got any closer.

Back-to-back buckets by Luis Scola pushed the advantage back to 83-71 and Indiana cruised to the win from there.

Earlier, Chicago led 23-19 after a quarter of play.
