NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION ; Stephenson, Pacers Run Away from Celtics with 106-79 Rout


INDIANAPOLIS - Paul George scored 24 points and Lance Stephenson recorded his third triple-double of the season, leading the Indiana Pacers to a 106-79 victory over the Boston Celtics on Sunday.

Stephenson had 12 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists as Indiana (22-5) won its second straight and maintained its grip on the Eastern Conference's best record. He's the only player in the league with more than one triple-double this season.

Indiana took control of the game by closing the first quarter on a 10-2 run and pulled away with a 15-1 spurt midway through the second quarter.

Boston never got closer than 13 the rest of the way.

Stevens, a lifelong Pacers fan, received a warm welcome before his first game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse since taking the Celtics job in July.

The rest of the night was pretty tough against a foe the 37-year- old coach dubbed "the best Pacers team" he'd seen in his lifetime.

Indiana certainly lived up to the billing, winning its second straight since losing back-to-back games for the first time all season. It shot 49 percent from the field, outrebounded Boston 53- 41 and only committed 13 turnovers.

Since losing Wednesday at two-time defending champion Miami, the team Indiana is battling for home-court advantage, the Pacers have beaten Western Conference contender Houston and Boston, which entered Sunday tied for the lead in the Atlantic Division, by a combined 60 points.

Now the Pacers have a chance to pad their lead over the Heat by playing 10 of their next 11 games against opponents with losing records. …
