CHARLOTTE – When all is said and done, it might be one of the easiest games the team has all season.
Coming off a loss in Brooklyn that snapped a four-game losing streak Sunday night, the Pacers made quick work of the lowly Bobcats on the road Tuesday. They led by double digits starting in the second half and never looked back in a dominating 103-76 victory over Charlotte at Time Warner Arena.
A balanced Pacers scoring attack was led by Roy Hibbert’s 18 points as the team improves to 24-15 on the season, good enough for third in the Eastern Conference standings.
Paul George and George Hill added 16 points a piece while David West scored 15 points and helped the Pacers pull away in the second half.
After snagging a 10-point lead at halftime the Pacers pulled away in the third quarter by outscoring the Bobcats 33-17 to seal their second win over the team in four days.
Frank Vogel’s team continues their road trip with a game against Orlando on Wednesday night.
