INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Monta Ellis scored 26 points and the Indiana Pacers beat Atlanta 93-87 on Monday night, ending the Hawks’ six-game winning streak.

Ellis had 15 points in the first half, and Ian Mahinmi finished with 13 points and nine rebounds.

With the Pacers leading by three, Ellis pulled up for a 3-point attempt with 16 seconds to play. The ball bounced off the rim, but Mahinmi was waiting for a tip-in that gave Indiana a five-point lead.
