INDIANAPOLIS (March 15, 2016) — Paul George scored 25 points and the Indiana Pacers finished with a strong fourth quarter to beat the Boston Celtics 103-98 Tuesday night.

Monta Ellis added 16 points with six assists and Jordan Hill scored 15 points for Indiana.

Isaiah Thomas had 21 points, eight assists and six rebounds for Boston.

The score was tied at 77 with about 7 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter before the Pacers put together a 15-4 run that gave them enough breathing room to withstand a late Celtics surge.

The Pacers had a 20-9 edge over a six-minute period during the fourth and it proved to be the difference.
