Cleveland’s Tristan Thompson hit a short jumper, which knotted the contest at 51-51 early in the third, but the Pacers countered with an 18-4 run to seize control.

George and Stephenson had six points apiece during the surge, with George’s dunk capping the outburst and making it 69-55 with 4:04 remaining in the third.
