Recap


Pacers 103, Bobcats 76
: Roy Hibbert led a balanced attack with 18 points and visiting Indiana used stifling defense and an enormous rebounding advantage to rout lowly Charlotte.

Hibbert led four players with at least 15 points for the Pacers, who held the Bobcats to 34.7-percent shooting and finished with a whopping 60-31 edge on the boards. Paul George and George Hill had 16 points apiece while David West added 15.

Gerald Henderson's 15 points paced the Bobcats, who have just two wins in their last 26 games and have dropped 13 straight games at home. Charlotte stood little chance against the best defensive unit in the NBA, failing to score more than 20 points in any quarter.

After holding Charlotte to 33.3 percent shooting en route to a 50-40 halftime lead, the Pacers piled it on in the third quarter. George opened the period with consecutive 3-pointers, then added a driving layup near the midway point of the quarter as the Pacers went into the fourth ahead 83-57.

Indiana continued to push defensively even with the game out of hand, as the Bobcats went more than six minutes without a field goal to open the fourth quarter. Tyler Hansbrough capped the dominant performance with a driving layup with 3:50 remaining that moved the Pacers to the 100-point mark for the first time since Dec. 29.

Hibbert had four of Indiana's nine blocked shots.
