Despite falling behind by 19 points in the third quarter and looking like they were going to get run out of the gym, the Indiana Pacers rallied back on the strength of great games from Paul George and Roy Hibbert to take Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals 95-92.
Both George (39 points, 12 rebounds) and Hibbert (17 points, nine rebounds) played like All-Stars, scoring 18 of the Pacers’ final 19 points in the fourth quarter as they brought their team back from what seemed like oblivion. The Wizard looked like an inexperienced team especially late, getting lulled into complacency as they opened up their big lead only to watch it rapidly evaporate.
The series now shifts back to Indiana, where the Pacers will have a chance to close out the series on Tuesday night. With the Wizards reeling, it would not be much of a shock to see Indiana win big and move on to the Eastern Conference Finals.
