Pacers rally to beat Bulls

Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis Indiana. NOTE TO USER User expressly acknowledges and agrees that by downl

With fewer than 40 seconds remaining and the Pacers down by two, Victor Oladipo delivered the dagger blow to the Bulls that all but ensured Indiana's 98-96 win on Wednesday. "It was about us tonight, coming out and trying to take care of business, playing a better game than we certainly played in NY (a 108-101 loss on November 5), but a better game than our last two opponents", Pacers coach Nate McMillan told reporters after the win.

Pacers: Indiana's 39 points at halftime was a season low.

But Indy's smothering defense in the game's final possession forced the Chicago to settle for a fading three-pointer as a Hail Mary attempt for the game.

Oladipo led all scorers with 27 points on 10-of-20 shooting (4-of-10 from 3-point range) and pulled down eight rebounds.

IN got a nice spark from Darren Collison in the third quarter. Before the reporter could get a question in, the Pacers guard got on the floor and did 10 quick push-ups.

From there, IN began to clamp down on defense, limiting the Bulls to 13 points IN the final quarter and getting the key stops that were largely missing IN the first half.

The Bulls missed eight of 16 free throws and had just one field goal in the last seven minutes.

Turner said the Pacers didn't take the Bulls lightly.

All five Pacers starters finished in double figures in the victory.

Bojan Bogdanovic had 17 points for IN (14-11), and Darren Collison finished with 14.

He even did 10 pushups for missing a free throw down the stretch. Robin Lopez had 16 points, Denzel Valentine had 15, Bobby Portis hd 12 and Lauri Markkanen and David Nwaba had 11. Lopez and Valentine each had a dozen in the half as the Bulls were seven of 15 on threes and Dunn had six first half assists.

Chicago is just 1-12 on the road this season.

Up next is their toughest opponent on the six-game slate, a Friday showdown with the red-hot Cleveland Cavaliers, who are now on a 13-game winning streak. Cleveland will bring a 13-game winning streak into that contest.
