WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 5, 2016) – Paul George scored 38 points, none more important than two free throws with 3.0 seconds to play, and a last-second shot from John Wall was off-target as the Pacers completed a fourth quarter comeback, topping the Wizards 100-99 in Washington D.C.

George scored his 38 points in 38 minutes, going 13-of-22 from the floor, 4-for-7 beyond the three-point line, and 8-of-8 at the charity stripe. It’s the 20th time this season George has scored 30 or more points in a game.

Monta Ellis (17), George Hill (12), and Jordan Hill (10) also scored in double-figures for the Pacers.

The win wraps up a four-game road trip, which the team finished with a 2-2 record. Next up, the Pacers return home, hosting the San Antonio Spurs Monday night at 7:00 p.m. inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
