The Indiana Pacers dominated the San Antonio Spurs in a 111-100  victory, leading by as many as 26 points on the Spurs' home floor. Paul George was brilliant, scoring a game-high 28 points on 9-of-14 shooting and making all four of his three-point attempts.

George scored 17 points in the first half, giving the team a huge boost to climb back into the lead after being down by 13. Indiana led the game from the 2:03 mark in the second quarter.

Indiana's power forward duo of David West and Luis Scola also had big games. David West was Indiana's second-leading scorer with 20 points. He also finished with eight rebounds, three steals and two blocks. Luis Scola put in 12 points and grabbed 10 rebounds off the bench.

Kawhi Leonard led the Spurs in scoring with 18 points. Tim Duncan struggled, going just 3-for-10 for 10 points on the night. Tony Parker finished the game with 13 points and two assists. Tiago Splitter played just over eight minutes and left the game early due to tightness in his calf.

Indiana improved to 18-2 and handed the Spurs their second home loss of the season. This was the first Pacers victory in San Antonio since 2002.
