Halftime Rewind: Pacers 38, Suns 46


Buoyed by the hot shooting of Justin Holiday and the playmaking of Caris LeVert, the Pacers hung tough with the Phoenix Suns, owners of the NBA's top record for much of Friday's contest.


But Indiana (15-28) became unglued in the fourth quarter, going the first minutes without a field goal, allowing Phoenix to push their lead back to double digits.


The Suns stretched their lead to six points at 28-22 early in the ensuing frame before LeVert checked back in and provided a spark to the Pacers' offense.


Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon missed Friday's game due to a sore right Achilles after aggravating the injury in Wednesday's loss to Boston.


Pacers center Myles Turner tallied two blocks in the loss and now has 984 in his career, six back of Roy Hibbert for fourth place in franchise history.


After a five-game Western Conference road trip, the Pacers return to Gainbridge Fieldhouse to host Gordon Hayward the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday, Jan. 26 at 7:00 PM ET.
