George, Pacers Pull Out OT Victory Over Knicks

NEW YORK (AP) — Paul George made three throws to tie it with 5.2 seconds left in regulation, then scored nine of his season-high 35 points in overtime as the Indiana Pacers pulled out a 103-96 victory Wednesday night over the New York Knicks, who dropped their sixth straight at home.

New York scored the first 13 points, but this settled into a playoff-type game between teams who met in the postseason last May. And it again went to the Pacers, who bounced back from their first loss after a franchise-record 9-0 start.

George Hill added 23 points and eight rebounds for the Pacers, who beat the Knicks in six games in last season’s Eastern Conference semifinals. Just as in the clincher of that series, Roy Hibbert had a pivotal block on Carmelo Anthony’s drive to the basket.

Anthony had 30 points and 18 rebounds for the Knicks, who looked completely deflated after they couldn’t score following the free throws George made when Iman Shumpert was called for fouling him.
