Players from both teams sank amazing shots, that kept the scoring see-sawing throughout the fourth quarter, which ultimately led to overtime.

With Lance Stephenson out due to a sore back, George Hill and David West had a great shooting night with Hill scoring 37 points and West dropping 30 points to help the Pacers keep the Trailblazers on their toes. Hill also had nine rebounds and eight assists.

While Paul George and Roy Hibbert struggled throughout the game, they both made some amazing plays in the fourth quarter with Paul George hitting a couple of big shots and Hibbit getting a loose ball and kicking it to George Hill who hit a three point shot that tied the game and eventually sent the game into overtime.

Giving the Pacers a hard fight to the end, the Trailblazers would not go away. High scorers Damian Lillard with 38 points and LaMarcus Aldridge with 22 points kept the pressure on, in which the Pacers had trouble keeping these two in check. The Trailblazers also got help from Wesley Matthews who scored 19 points in the second half of the game and center Robin Lopez who put in 17 points and grab 14 rebounds.
