The Indiana Pacers held on to beat the LA Clippers 109-106 on the road at the Staples Center.
Roy Hibbert had 26 points and 10 rebounds before fouling out and Paul George added 23 points and 10 assists. The Pacers barely completed a sweep of their four-game road trip with the victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night in a battle of division leaders.
Hibbert was serving a one-game suspension from the league when the Pacers lost to the Clippers 99-91 at Indianapolis on Feb. 28th. He made all eight of his shots in the first half and finished 11 for 14 from the field to help his team extend its winning streak to five and increase its Central Division lead to 6 1/2 games over idle Chicago.
All five Pacers starters scored in double figures, with David West getting 16 and Lance Stephenson and George Hill chipping in with 13 apiece.
