INDIANA -- The Indiana Pacers made quick work out of visiting OKC, beating the Thunder 111-85 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in downtown Indianapolis on Tuesday night (Wednesday morning RP time).
T.J. Warren carried Indy 23 points and he got a lot of support from his teammates as Malcolm Brogdon poured 20 points, six rebounds and five assists while Damontas Sabonis had 18 and 16 rebounds. Aaron Holiday added 17.
"I just wanted to come out with a high sense of urgency out there. I know we had a good little lead and we just wanted to put them away in the third. I just wanted to be aggressive and attack," Warren told the Associated Press about his surge.
Danilo Gallinaro had 14 points to lead the Thunder and Steven Adams finished with 10.
But Chris Paul, who collects a $38.5 million paycheck this season, managed just seven points with eight assists.
Indiana missed 16 of their 23 treys but they made 46 of 94 overall. The Pacers led only by 10 at halftime, 52-42, and they put the Thunder away with a 34-20 third quarter spurt.
OKC, which stunk up the floor with 29 of 81 shooting from the field, fell to 4-7 record while the Pacers improved to 7-4 and grab sixth place in the Eastern Conference.
