Malcolm Brogdon hit the game winner in overtime, securing an improbable win over New Orleans. Victor Oladipo scored 25 and Myles Turner had 17.
Somehow, someway the Indiana Pacers pulled out a comeback win over the New Orleans Pelicans, forcing overtime on two huge threes from Victor Oladipo and Myles Turner and then getting a game winning floater from Malcolm Brogdon in the extra period to secure the win.
The Pacers trailed by 10 with 2:22 in the fourth, but the defense held strong throughout the night, forcing just enough stops for Oladipo to hit a three with 20 seconds left, then steal the inbounds and have the Turner pull up for the game-tying three. Turner, along with Domantas Sabonis, languished with foul trouble all night, but Indiana managed to hold on after Turner fouled out in overtime, again forcing just enough stops to set up the Brogdon game-winner.

The Pacers pick up a huge win, returning home to play the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.
