BROOKLYN, NY -Second night of a back-to-back, fourth game in five nights, and no problem for the undefeated Indiana Pacers, as they outlasted the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night, 96-91.

Paul George led all Pacers in scoring with 24 points on 8 of 14 shooting from the field. That’s George’s seventh straight game with 20 0r more points, joining Clark Kellogg as the only other player in Pacers’ history to begin a season with such a mark, per ESPN Stats & Info.

David West had his most efficient and productive game of the season in the victory, adding 18 points, eight boards, four assists, and two steals. Along with West, the starting lineup carried the team for the most part, scoring 78 of the team’s 96 points.

Indiana’s offense as a whole was clicking as well. The Pacers shot 46 percent from the field, hit half of their 14 attempts from behind the arc, and turned the ball over just 13 times.

The Pacers will head back home to face the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.
