The Pacers dominated in the third quarter, outscoring the Warriors 36-21 and extending their lead to as many as 16 points.

Tyrese Haliburton scored 15 of his game-high 26 points in the second half after dishing eight of his 11 assists before intermission. Four more scorers hit double figures for the Pacers, including Andrew Nembhard, who tallied 17 on 7-of-11 shooting.

Myles Turner added 14 points and 10 rebounds, and his five blocked shots gave him the Indiana franchise record. He surpassed Jermaine O’Neal with his 1,246th in the third quarter.

Jalen Smith and T.J. McConnell each scored 11 off the bench for the Pacers. McConnell added six assists, contributing to Indiana’s 32 on its 48 field goals.

Golden State’s Stephen Curry erupted for 13 points in the first quarter, but the Pacers’ defense adjusted to hold him to 12 combined over the next three periods. The last of Curry’s 25 points came with 6:47 remaining in regulation.
