Recap: Indiana vs. Milwaukee

Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Roy Hibbert poured in 20 points to go with 15 rebounds and five blocked shots as the Indiana Pacers cruised past the Milwaukee Bucks, 95-80, on Saturday.

George Hill added 14 points, eight rebounds and four assists while Lance Stephenson and David West scored 10 points apiece for the Pacers, who improved to 12-3 at home this season.

"We knew this was going to be a must-win situation for us," said West. "We're fighting to stay even with these guys in the season series and stay ahead of them in the standings."

Monta Ellis scored a game-high 21 points and Brandon Jennings added 12 points and five assists for the Bucks, who have dropped four straight.

"We've got some issues, especially the last four losses in a row," said Bucks coach Scott Skiles. "We couldn't make key stops at crucial times and our rebounding was a little suspect."

The game was tied, 21-21, after the first 12 minutes, but Indiana was able to take a 45-40 lead with just over four minute remaining in the first half. Ellis, though, scored the next five points to knot it at 45-45 just over a minute later.

Gerald Green's triple sparked a 7-2 push for the Pacers, who led 52-47 at the break.

The Bucks took a 53-52 lead early in the third, but an 8-0 run put Indiana ahead 60-53 a bit later. Hill's reverse layup near the midway point of the frame sparked a 15-7 surge to put Indiana up 77-64 entering the final period.

The lead grew as large as 20 in the fourth to give the Pacers their 10th win in their last 13 tries.
