Paul George and George Hill netted 26 points apiece for the Pacers, who are
8-0 at home and were able to slow down Wolves star Kevin Love.

Lance Stephenson had 11 points and eight rebounds for Indiana. George is nine
points away from reaching 3,000 for his career.
The Pacers, who have won seven games by 10 or more points, have won two in a

Charlotte will resume a three-game homestand and dropped a 96-86 decision to
the Boston Celtics Monday night.

who have lost four of their last six games. Al Jefferson scored 14 points in a
losing effort. Walker has scored 20-plus points in six games.
The Bobcats are 3-5 at home and will also host Milwaukee on the homestand.
