Indiana pulled away in the third quarter, outscoring Golden State 36-21 after trailing by double-digits in the first half. Haliburton, coming off a recent shooting slump, now has at least 20 points in back-to-back games. He keyed the Pacers’ run with 11 points in the third quarter.

Stephen Curry led Golden State with 25 points and 10 rebounds, shooting 6 of 18 from 3-point range. Chris Paul was ejected in the final seconds, picking up two quick technical fouls.
