Pacers protect home court, beat Knicks

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana - The Indiana Pacers kept everything in front of them Saturday night.

The Pacers didn’t let the Knicks get away from them on fast breaks, didn’t let the Knicks get good 3-point looks and didn’t even give New York a chance to challenge late.

Instead, Roy Hibbert, Paul George and Indiana showed what it can do when it plays its game.

Hibbert finished with 24 points and 12 rebounds, while George nearly came up with another postseason triple double, leading the Pacers to a crucial 82-71 Game 3 victory and a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals.

“That’s how we play Pacers basketball,” George said. “We just locked in, and it was just helping one another on the defensive end.”
