INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Paul George scored 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead four Pacers in double figures and Indiana rallied from a seven-point halftime deficit for a 99-82 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night.

Lance Stephenson scored 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting, Danny Granger came off the bench to score 13 and George Hill added 10 for Indiana.

Former Indiana University star Eric Gordon finished with 21 points for the Pelicans after scoring 17 in the first half.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Gary Harris scored 26 points and No. 5 Michigan State beat Indiana 73-56 on Saturday.

Harris had 17 points in the first half for the Spartans (13-1, 2-0 Big Ten) and he had a 5-point play midway through the second half.
