Recap: Indiana vs. Atlanta

Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Paul George led seven Indiana players in double figures with 29 points help the Pacers down the Atlanta Hawks, 114-103, on Tuesday.

George Hill and David West each added 15 points, Lance Stephenson poured in 14 and Roy Hibbert and Ian Mahinmi scored 12 points apiece for the Pacers, who have won 15 straight games at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and improved to 20-3 at home this season.

"We were just being aggressive and sharing the ball. We're making extra passes when the opportunity is there," West said. "We're getting baskets within the flow of our offense."

D.J. Augustin added 10 points off the bench in the win.

Jeff Teague scored 24 points and dished out eight assists and Al Horford scored 15 points and grabbed eight rebounds for the Hawks, losers in three of their last four games.

"We couldn't get a key stop when we needed it. We were trading baskets, but they were making (3-pointers). It is tough to win a game when you're trading baskets with a team at home," Teague said.

The Pacers held a slim 50-49 lead entering the third quarter, but outscored the Hawks by a 31-21 margin in the frame to take an 81-70 edge into the final period. George poured in 11 points in the frame after going 3-for-5 from 3- point range. Indiana shot 50 percent (11-for-22) from the field in the quarter.

Atlanta couldn't get closer than 102-94 over the final 12 minutes.

The Hawks outscored the Pacers, 21-18, in the first period, but Indiana shot a blistering 58.8 percent (10-for-17) from the field in the second to take a 50-49 lead into the break.
