Instant Rewind: Pacers 112, Bulls 120 (OT)


The Pacers fought back from an 11-point fourth quarter deficit to force overtime on Monday night against Chicago, but went cold in the extra session.


Sabonis scored inside to give the Pacers a two-point lead with 1:28 to play, but LaVine answered on the other end with a strong take over Turner.


LaVine split a pair of free throws, giving the Pacers the ball back with another chance to tie or take the lead.


Temple knocked the ball out of Brogdon's hands, but the Pacers point guard was able to corral it and put it up and in to tie the game with 10.5 seconds left in regulation.


The offense then came alive for Indiana, as Justin Holiday hit three 3-pointers during a 22-6 run by the Blue & Gold, his final triple giving the hosts a 67-64 lead with 3:21 remaining in the third quarter.


Two Sabonis free throws with 4:58 left gave Indiana its first lead of the fourth quarter at 94-92, setting the stage for a wild finish.
