Recap


Pacers 82, Grizzlies 81
: George Hill hit one of two free throws with 1.4 seconds left to lift visiting Indiana to a win in the opener of a four-game road trip.

A nip-and-tuck fourth quarter featured four ties, the last coming at 81-81 on a Zach Randolph hoop with 10 seconds left. Hill was then fouled on the other end by Mike Conley and made the second of two attempts from the line. Rudy Gay banked in a 3-pointer for Memphis but it came after the buzzer.

David West led Indiana with 14 points while Hill had 13 and Paul George finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. Wayne Ellington came off the bench to pace the Grizzlies with 17 points.

Memphis went over five minutes without a basket in the fourth quarter before Randolph's hook in the lane cut the Pacers' lead to 78-74 with 4:07 left. Conley hit a pull-up jumper moments later to get Memphis within two points and then canned a 3-pointer to put the hosts on top with 2:10 to go.

George answered seconds later with a 3-pointer of his own and Randolph tied it after Tony Allen stripped Indiana center Roy Hibbert underneath the Memphis hoop. After George was bottled up underneath fighting through screens, Hill drove to the right of the lane with the clock winding down and Conley caught him on the arm.
