Al Jefferson imposed his will on the reeling Pacers and put up a monstrous 34 points on 16-of-25 shooting with eight rebounds and three assists. Kemba Walker added 19 points and nine assists as the Bobcats improved to 28-33.
The story of the game for Indiana (46-15) was Paul George's woeful shooting performance. The All-Star finished with just two points on 0-for-9 from the field, including a disastrous 0-for-4 from beyond the three-point line. David West struggled as well, finishing with just 10 points on 4-14.
The lone bright spot for the Pacers was Evan Turner, who had his best game with the squad to date. The newcomer who came over in a trade deadline deal finished with 22 points on 9-of-12 shooting to go along with five assists.
Despite George's awful night, Indiana still managed to shoot 41 percent from the field, but committed 18 turnovers. On the other side, the Bobcats took care of the ball with just seven turnovers and shot a stellar 51 percent from the field.
