"It took us all 48 minutes to get control of this game", Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. "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. LeBron James led the way with 32 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, Kevin Love added 18 points with 13 rebounds while Jeff Green and Kyle Korver added 17 and 15 points respectively. The Bulls are getting solid play from second-year point guard Kris Dunn, who led the team with 15 points on Monday and scored in double figures in 13 of the last 18 contests.
The Pacers (14-11) hit 12 of 21 shots in the third quarter to stay within striking distance. The Pacers defeated the Bulls 98-96. "That's what a lot of teams are going towards, putting up a lot of 3s and trying to get in transition and get a lot of layups", Young told the team's website.
"We just didn't come out as sharp as we've been all season", Turner said. "It was a flat start, but we recovered, thankfully".
The Pacers will be facing tougher competition next game as they face the Cavaliers on Friday. Meanwhile, the Pacers are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games against a team with a winning road record and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
