NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Ian Mahinmi had 17 points and 10 rebounds, and the Indiana Pacers posted a 91-86 win over a reeling New Orleans Pelicans team that lost Anthony Davis to a lower back bruise early in the game Friday night.

Davis was hurt diving into the stands to stop a ball from going out of bounds on the defensive end. He went to the locker room soon after and never returned.

C.J. Miles scored 15, hitting a running hook inside the final 2 minutes to help Indiana hold on, while Paul George added 13 points and Monta Ellis 10.

Tyreke Evans scored 27 for New Orleans, which has lost four out of five. Ryan Anderson scored 21 points and Jrue Holiday 15.
