Malcolm Brogdon and Domantas Sabonis combined for 48 points and the Indiana Pacers used a 33-10 blitz in the second quarter to take command en route to a 111-87 victory at Portland.

Of greater concern for the Trail Blazers, though, was center Jusuf Nurkic breaking his right wrist. He exited in the third quarter after he fell, and he didn’t come back into the game.


Brogdon logged a game-high 25 points and Sabonis complemented him with 23.

The Pacers, short-handed after trading Victor Oladipo to the Houston Rockets, won a second straight on the road.

Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum had 22 points apiece for Portland, which had won four in a row but was playing the second night of a back-to-back set.
