Kemba Walker scored 22 here, and nailed the game-winner with just 2.4 seconds left for a 96-95 victory.
Monta Ellis had given the Pacers the lead on a layup with just over 16 seconds in the game, but the defense couldn’t stop Walker. Paul George would finish with 32 points for Indy.
Raptors-Cavaliers: Kyle Lowry posted a new career-high in points with 43 last night in Toronto, leading his Raptors to a 99-97 win over the visiting Cavaliers. He also hit the game-winning shot as the clock wound down.
Terrence Ross would add 15 for the Raptors; it was their 10th straight win at home, which ties a franchise record.
LeBron James posted 25 points and missed a game-winner at the buzzer. Kevin Love had 20 points.
