Paul George was the man for Indiana during a boring contest with the Hawks. He racked up a triple-double with 23 points, 12 dimes and 11 rebounds. He was 17-17 from the charity stripe to make up for his 3-13 for the field, which was fairly indicative of the game as a whole.
Pacers took this one 107-90.
