Scola lifts Pacers to victory over Bulls

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Luis Scola had 19 points and Lance Stephenson finished with 15 to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 91-79 win over the Chicago Bulls on Friday night.

The Pacers (51-18), who took a 13-game lead on the Bulls (38-31) in the Central Division, went on a game-deciding 19-0 run in the third quarter.

DJ Augustin and Jimmy Butler each scored 17 points for the Bulls, who have lost two of their last three games.

Paul George, who finished with 10 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists, also made a basket and dunked, David West scored twice and Stephenson made a basket, a dunk and converted a three-point play to help the Pacers pull away in the big run in the third quarter.

The Bulls went on a 7-0 run early in the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough.

The Pacers announced about an hour before tipoff that Andrew Bynum was out indefinitely with soreness and swelling in his right knee and said he would “continue to undergo treatment.”

Bynum, who signed with Indiana on Feb. 1 after being suspended in December by the Cleveland Cavaliers, made his debut with Indiana against the Boston Celtics last week and played in just two games.

The Bulls handed Indiana its first loss of the season back on Nov. 16 after the Pacers got off to its best start in franchise history. Derrick Rose and Luol Deng combined for 43 points in that game. This time, the Bulls didn’t have either.

Deng has since been traded and Rose hasn’t played since Nov. 22.
