Pacers avoid disaster against Bulls, rally for 98-96 win

LeBron James led the way with 32 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, Kevin Love added 18 points with 13 rebounds while Jeff Green and Kyle Korver added 17 and 15 points respectively.

"This one, it stings a lot", coach Fred Hoiberg said. The Pacers will be feeling pretty good following their big comeback win over the Bulls but it really should have been a walk in the park for them given how bad the Bulls have been this season. The Bulls are getting solid play from second-year point guard Kris Dunn, who led the team with 15 points on Monday and scored in double figures in 13 of the last 18 contests.

ABOUT THE BULLS (3-19): Promising rookie forward Lauri Markkanen is already the go-to scorer for the young team but is struggling with his shot of late and went 5-of-13 from the floor on Monday to drop to 39.3 percent on the season.

He's under contract through 2020, earning $10.5 million this coming season, $13 million in 2019, and $13.5 million in 2020. He promptly tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in late April, and served an 80-game suspension.

The Pacers (14-11) hit 12 of 21 shots in the third quarter to stay within striking distance.

Turner said the Pacers didn't take the Bulls lightly. "Just to get out in the open floor and see a couple easy ones go in, build some momentum...that's what happened in the fourth quarter and we were able to pull it out". "It was a flat start, but we recovered, thankfully". Austin Hutchinson from Locked On Bulls website joins host Tony East to recap the Indiana Pacers massive come from behind 98-96 victory over the Chicago Bulls. Chicago has lost nine of its last 11 games against the Pacers.

IN shot just 39 percent from the floor and turned the ball over eight times before the break. After all, a 27-point, eight-rebound, two-assist night, part of your 23-point, four-assist, five-rebounds per game season long averages, can't be all that great if you missed a free throw. With the win, IN improved to 14-11 overall and 8-4 at home. IN was averaging 108.9 points per game coming into the night, fourth-best in the National Basketball Association.
