Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) – Paul George led six Indiana scorers in
double figures with 24 points and grabbed a team-high nine rebounds, as the
Pacers pounded the Houston Rockets, 114-81, on Friday at Bankers Life
Fieldhouse.

Lance Stephenson supplied 16 points, six boards, and six assists, Luis Scola
scored 13, and David West and George Hill each netted 12 points for the
Pacers, who were coming off back-to-back losses for the first time all season.

Former All-Star Danny Granger made his season debut for the Pacers after
missing the entire season with a strained left calf and all but five games
last season thanks to a knee injury. Granger finished with five points in just
over 22 minutes.

Dwight Howard led the Rockets with 19 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks,
while James Harden managed just 12 points on 3-of-14 shooting from the field
in the setback, Houston’s third in its last five games.
