Kawhi Leonard had 18 points to lead San Antonio, which has dropped three of its last five.

The Spurs led 28-20 after a quarter of play and led by as many as 13 in the second but back-to-back triples by C.J. Watson and George capped a 14-2 Pacers run to give them a 40-39 edge late in the stanza.

Indiana took a 52-48 cushion into the break and a 16-4 surge to start the third put the Pacers comfortably in front. George Hill knocked down a pair of triples and West put in six points during the surge, which West finished off with consecutive baskets for a 68-52 Indiana advantage.
