Recap


Paul George scored 18 of his career-high 30 points in the second half and added nine rebounds and five assists to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 98-87 victory over the host Dallas Mavericks on Friday.

David West added 20 points and Danny Granger chipped in 16 for the Pacers, who have won four straight.

Indiana trailed, 53-52, at the half but quickly went about taking control in the third quarter. George scored on the first possession and then stole a pass and scored in transition, getting fouled and completing the three-point play.

George and Granger each hit a 3-pointer and West hit a jumper during a 10-0 burst later in the frame that pushed the lead to 71-59.

George hit three 3-pointers in the first 5:15 of the fourth quarter as the Pacers stretched it out to 92-75 and coasted to the finish.

Dirk Nowitzki had his best game since returning to the lineup for the Mavericks with 30 points on 12-of-17 shooting and seven rebounds. The star forward had bottomed out at eight points on 2-of-15 shooting in a loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.
