Recap

Pacers 103, Mavericks 83: David West had 15 points to lead six players in double figures as Indiana dominated the second half against visiting Dallas.

George Hill also scored 15 while handing out seven assists while Roy Hibbert collected 14 and eight rebounds. Sam Young added 10 of his season-high 14 in the second half, Lance Stephenson chipped in 10 of his 12 in the third quarter and Paul George contributed 11.

O.J. Mayo scored 19 points for the Mavericks, who have lost four straight road games and four of five overall. Darren Collison and Vince Carter chipped in 10 apiece for Dallas, which shot 38.5 percent.

The Pacers came into the game with the league's worst scoring offense but had their best showing of the season. They shot 47 percent from the floor, including 6-of-16 from 3-point range and reached 100 points for the first time in regulation.

Indiana led by double digits most of the fourth quarter and surpassed its scoring average on Hill's hook shot with 5:46 remaining. The basket was part of a 13-4 run which gave the Pacers an 89-71 advantage. The Pacers used a 16-5 run to take control in the third quarter to snap a 54-54 tie.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Dallas forward Shawn Marion returned to the lineup after missing five games due to a sprained MCL in his left knee. He scored just two points on 1-of-5 shooting. ... Before the game, Pacers coach Frank Vogel decided to run fewer set plays to get his struggling offense going. The plan seemed to work as the team had 23 assists on 39 baskets ... Collison returned to Indiana for the first time since being traded to Dallas in the offseason, but shot just 3-of-10 from the field.
