The Warriors barely hung on to give Indiana its fourth home loss of the season -- three of which have come at the hands of Western Conference teams -- after giving up a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter.
George had 26 points on 8-of-23 from the field, including a last-ditch long-range heave from beyond the arc that came within inches of falling and answering Thompson's game-winner.
Thompson finished with 25 points of his own on 10-of-20 from the field and 3-of-5 from the three-point line. Stephen Curry was strong in every facet as he posted 19 points, eight rebounds, six assists and two steals.
David West led all scorers with 27 points and added seven rebounds for Indiana.
Late in the fourth, George picked the ball away on Curry's crossover attempt and converted two free throws on the ensuing possession to tie the game with under two minutes remaining. George's play gave the Pacers all the momentum they needed to make it a close contest toward the end.
But it wasn't enough as the Warriors held the Pacers to just 3-of-16 from beyond the arc while shooting 10-of-20 from deep on the day.
