Recap


Tyler Hansbrough had 29 points and 12 rebounds as the Indiana Pacers blew an 18-point lead before snapping the Chicago Bulls' winning streak at eight with a 115-108 overtime victory Friday night at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The final minutes of regulation became a duel between Hansbrough and Derrick Rose, who tied a season high with 42 points and sent the game into OT by sinking all three free throws after being fouled on a 3-point try just before the buzzer.

Rose converted a three-point play as the Bulls (49-19) got to 100-98 before Hansbrough made another jumper. Rose made one free throw but missed a long 3-pointer with 30 seconds to go before getting a chance at the late heroics when he was fouled by Darren Collision attempting a 3-pointer with 1 second left.

The Pacers (30-39) grabbed an eight-point lead in overtime, but Rose again drew the Bulls to 111-108 with a layup with 43 seconds left. Rose fouled Josh McRoberts with 24 seconds left and he made both free throws to help seal it.

Danny Granger scored 19, Darren Collison 17 and Roy Hibbert 15 for the Pacers (30-39), who lead Charlotte by a game-and-a-half for the eight playoff spot in the East following the Bobcats' loss at Oklahoma City.

Carlos Boozer missed his fifth consecutive game with a left ankle injury for Chicago, which maintained a half-game lead over Boston (48-19) for best record in the Eastern Conference. Luol Deng had 21 points and nine rebounds and Joakim Noah, battling the flu, scored 17 on 7-of-8 shooting.
