Pacers pull even with Bulls in the Division

February 05, 2013 17:56:47 UK

The Indiana Pacers picked up their third consecutive victory on Monday to draw level with the Chicago Bulls in the Central Division.

David West had 29 points and George Hill chipped in with a further 22, as the Pacers followed up wins over the Detroit Pistons and Miami Heat with a 111-101 triumph at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN.

The Pacers conclude their four-game home stand with the visit of the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday evening before making a one game road trip to Philadelphia to play their third game in three nights.

Chicago continues on their travels on Thursday and Friday when they head west to play the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz to complete the six-game road trip.

Monday the New York Knicks increased their lead over the Brooklyn Nets in the Atlantic Division to three and a half games with a 99-85 defeat of the Detroit Pistons.

Carmelo Anthony had 27 points to lead all scorers and Amar'e Stoudemire and J.R. Smith combined for a further 36 points off the bench as the Knicks won their fifth straight to complete an undefeated home stand.

It's now onto the Verizon Center in Washington to play the Wizards on Wednesday.

Washington was also in action on Monday evening taking full advantage of a weakened Los Angeles Clippers side to run out 98-90 winners.

Neither Chris Paul nor Blake Griffin suited up for the visitors who saw DeAndre Jordan grab 22 rebounds, but had little else to cheer about as LA lost its third in a row.

The Pacers are 9.00 to win the NBA Championship, with the Knicks 1001.00.
