Turner leads Pacers past Bulls 96-90
(INDIANAPOLIS) – The Indiana Pacers aren't picky or worried about style points. With All-Star guard Victor Oladipo out for an eighth straight game with a sore right knee, the Pacers will take wins, no matter how they come. Myles Turner matched his season high with 18 points and added 11 rebounds and five blocked shots as the Pacers defeated Chicago 96-90 on Tuesday night and spoiled the debut of new Bulls coach Jim Boylen. Darren Collison had 23 points and 8 rebounds, Bojan Bogdanovic scored 14 points and Tyreke Evans finished with 10 for Indiana. Lauri Markkanen led the Bulls with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Justin Holiday, facing off against his brother, Indiana rookie Aaron Holiday, finished with 15 points. Chicago has lost seven straight games. With the absence of Oladipo hard to ignore, the Pacers relied heavily on their five starters to carry the load. Four of Indiana's five starters scored in double figures, combining for 71 of the Pacers' 96 points. One of Indiana's biggest contributions came from Domantis Sabonis off the bench, and could very well have been the difference, with Pacers' starters working overtime to fill the void left by Oladipo's nagging injury. Sabonis added nine points and 11 rebounds off the bench.
