INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Paul George scored 36 points and Lance Stephenson added 22 points and 12 rebounds, leading the Indiana Pacers past the Los Angeles Clippers, 106-92 last night. Indiana (32-7) has won four straight, all by double digits, though missed a chance to win four in a row by 20 or more points for the first time in franchise history.
