Recap


Pacers 88, Grizzlies 83: Paul George scored 13 of his 21 points in the second half to rally host Indiana past Memphis for its fifth straight home win.

D.J. Augustin made his first start and had a season-high 17 points, including seven in the final 2:06, as the Pacers won for the eighth time in 10 games and snapped a five-game losing streak at the hands of the Grizzlies.

Zach Randolph had 21 points and 15 rebounds to pace Memphis, which led by as many as 12 points midway through the third quarter before wilting in the fourth to lose for the third time in four games.

Marc Gasol and Randolph each converted three-point plays to ignite a 17-3 spurt and give the Grizzlies their biggest lead at 61-49, but Indiana cut the lead to 67-60 after three quarters and got a pair of 3-pointers from Ben Hansbrough in a 10-2 run to open the fourth and go ahead 70-69.

A corner jumper by David West and Augustin's 3-pointer gave the Pacers an 82-76 lead with 2:06 to play, but the Grizzlies cut it to 82-81 before Augustin hit four free throws and Lance Stephenson added a pair in the final 29.1 seconds
