Recap

Pacers 115, Hornets 107 (OT): Paul George scored a career-high 37 points and hit all nine of his franchise-record 3-pointers after halftime to lift host Indiana.

Roy Hibbert had a triple-double with 10 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 11 blocks as the Pacers won back-to-back games for the first time this season and handed New Orleans its fifth consecutive defeat.

David West and George Hill scored 16 points apiece for Indiana, which erased a seven-point deficit in the final four minutes of regulation and opened the overtime session with a pair of 3-pointers by George to ignite a 10-0 run.

Robin Lopez had 21 points and 13 rebounds and Al-Farouq Aminu also had a double-double with 14 points and 10 boards for the Hornets, who have allowed 100 points in every game during the five-game skid.

Jason Smith added a season-high 18 points and Ryan Anderson connected on all five of his 3-point attempts for New Orleans, which had five players in double figures but could not match Indiana's 15-of-27 shooting from behind the arc.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Hornets rookie and top overall pick Anthony Davis missed his second straight game with a stress reaction in his left ankle. ... Hibbert's 11 blocks were the most in an NBA game this season - four more than recorded by Serge Ibaka, DeAndre Jordan, and Marcin Gortat. ... Lopez hit a career-high 15 free throws on 17 attempts. His previous best was eight.
