Trailing 75-69 heading into the final frame, Brooklyn opened the quarter on a 17-2 run to firmly take control of the game. Brook Lopez scored eight of his 15 points during the run, while Deron Williams scored four points and dished out three assists in the key stretch. Williams finished with a team-high 22 points and nine assists on 7-of-18 shooting.
Indiana (23-15) controlled much of the play throughout the first three quarters of the game, thanks to a strong performance from David West. West scored 27 points on 11-of-19 shooting, but only four of those points came in the fourth quarter. The Pacers went away from their hot hand down the stretch, as West took just one shot in the final five minutes of the contest.
