Pacers Down Kings

Caris LeVert scored 22 points and the Indiana Pacers held on after blowing a 15-point lead, beating the Sacramento Kings 94-91 on Sunday night.

 

Domontas Sabonis had 17 points and 10 rebounds to help Indiana to its first win in Sacramento since 2018. T.J. McConnell added 17 points and Chris Duarte scored 15 in the Pacers' first road win of the season.

 

Indiana shot well most of the game and led 69-54 midway through the third quarter, but got only one bucket the rest of the period, allowing the Kings to creep back in.

 

Sacramento trailed most of the game before opening the fourth quarter with an 11-1 run and taking a three-point lead. Indiana responded with 10 straight points.

 

McConnell's bucket down low put the Pacers up 93-88 before Tyrese Haliburton's 3-pointer cut the gap to two points with 1:28 remaining.

 

The teams exchanged multiple misses, and Haliburton missed the rim on a deep 3-point attempt late before McConnell made one of two free throws with 2.5 seconds left.

 

The Pacers then intercepted the ensuing inbounds pass attempt.

 

Harrison Barnes scored 22 points for the Kings. Haliburton, De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield scored 17 apiece.

 

The Pacers play the Nuggets on Wednesday.
