Pacers have little trouble topping Nets

Jan 29, 2011 - 3:28 AM Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Mike Dunleavy netted 30 points, dished out five assists and grabbed four rebounds, as Indiana raced past New Jersey, 124-92, at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Roy Hibbert posted 20 points and six rebounds while Danny Granger scored 18 for the Pacers, who snapped a season-long six game slide. Rookie Paul George added 15 points in the win.

"We know that we can win," Dunleavy said. "We know that we have to come out strong, move the ball, play D and find a way to win. We want to be aggressive and make better decisions on all occasions. I think tonight is the beginning and we just need to work, work, work."

Brook Lopez carried the load with 28 points as the Nets had a two-game win streak halted. Travis Outlaw added 12 points and six rebounds in the loss.

"We really weren't as good (defensively) as we have been in the past couple of games," Lopez said. "Fortunately, it was just one game and we need to get back to what we were doing at home."

Indiana used a 17-6 run during the last five minutes of the opening quarter to take a 32-27 lead into the second.

During the second stanza, a 7-0 run by the Nets tied it at 36 with 9:24 left. However, the Pacers built a substantial 68-54 advantage at intermission after shooting a blazing 70 percent from the field in the quarter -- they ended the game making 62.5 percent of their shots.

The Pacers continued to set the tone by blowing the game open with 25-point lead, 94-69, following a 9-0 run capped off by Dunleavy's jumper with 3:21 left in the third.

The home team eclipsed the 100-point mark with 1:40 left in the same quarter after James Posey's two free throws and claimed a commanding 104-78 advantage heading into the final frame.

New Jersey never threatened in the final quarter as the Pacers held a lead as much as 34 en route to the easy win.
