Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Paul George led six Indiana players in
double-figures and recorded for his first career triple-double with 23 points,
12 rebounds and 12 assists, as the Pacers pushed past the Charlotte Bobcats,
101-77, on Wednesday.
George, who heads into the midseason break for his first All-Star Game,
responded well following a 1-of-10 shooting effort for just five points
in Monday's loss versus Brooklyn.
Tyler Hansbrough, starting in place of an injured David West, added a double-
double with 19 points and 10 boards for the Pacers, who bounced back from
back-to-back overtime losses at home following a season-high five-game winning
streak. Roy Hibbert contributed 10 points and eight rebounds and George Hill
donated 11 in the victory.
