Myles Turner had 28 points and 10 rebounds and the Indiana Pacers beat the Brooklyn Nets 129-105 to clinch a playoff berth.

 

Solomon Hill had 13 points and 12 rebounds for Indiana while George Hill had 18 points and Ian Mahinmi had 16. The Pacers led by as many as 42 points.

 

The Pacers could have clinched a playoff berth in Toronto on Friday night but lost by 13. That result left Indiana determined to take care of business Sunday.

 

Sean Kilpatrick had 26 points for the Nets, who lost their seventh consecutive game and 12th straight on the road. Markel Brown had 18 points and 11 rebounds.

 

The Pacers have two games left and can still finish as high as seventh in the Eastern Conference if they end up with the same record as the Detroit Pistons. Indiana is back in the postseason for the first time since 2013-14, when it was the No. 1 seed and lost in the Eastern Conference Finals to the Miami Heat in six games.
