Pacers rolling at home, beat Hawks


Playing back-to-back nights is no problem for the Indiana Pacers.

Not when the back-to-backs are in Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Pacers have no problems winning there.

Paul George scored 29 points, and David West and George Hill added 15 apiece to power Indiana to a 114-103 win Tuesday night against the visiting Atlanta Hawks. The victory was the Pacers’ 15th straight at home and came one night after a 111-101 home triumph against the Chicago Bulls.

Indiana, which has a half-game edge on Chicago for the Central Division lead, is 20-3 overall at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. It has not lost at home since Dec. 7.

Best of all for the Pacers (30-19), nine of their next 12 games are at home. But travel tonight to Philadelphia, where they will complete the NBA’s only three games in three nights stretch this season.
