Turner, Haliburton key to the Pacers’ 116-111 victory over the Hornets

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Myles Turner scored 29 points, Buddy Hield had 21 and the Indiana Pacers capped the first half of their regular-season schedule with a 116-111 comeback victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday.

Tyrese Haliburton finished with 16 points, 13 assists and five rebounds for the Pacers, who trailed by nine early in the fourth quarter and needed a series of clutch plays in the final minutes to improve their record to 23-18 at the halfway point.

“I’m excited for us, excited that we’re breaking through,” Turner said. “We still have a lot of work to do. We cannot be satisfied.”

PJ Washington had 22 points and five rebounds for the Hornets. Terry Rozier had 19 points, six assists and six boards, and Mason Plumlee finished with 18 points and 13 rebounds.

Plumlee attempted a dunk with 13 seconds left that would have brought Charlotte within a point, but Turner’s blocked shot sent the crowd into a frenzy. The 26-year-old rising star finished with nine rebounds and four blocks. His three-point play with 1:11 left had tied the game.
