INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- CJ Miles made five 3-pointers and scored 17 points, Paul George had nine points and nine rebounds after remaining with Indiana following the trade deadline, and the Pacers snapped a six-game losing streak with a 102-92 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night.
Monta Ellis finished with 16 points, Myles Turner scored 12, and Lavoy Allen, Jeff Teague and Thaddeus Young each added 10 for the Pacers.
George was one of the biggest names involved in trade speculation Thursday and Pacers fans showed they were happy he wasn't dealt, giving the All-Star forward perhaps the loudest ovation he's received all season during player introductions. They are that a contract extension will be worked out before George becomes a free agent after the 2017-18 season.
He shot just 3 for 12 but the Pacers outscored the Grizzlies 64-42 across the middle two quarters and never relinquished their lead, leading by as many as 27 points in the second half. The Grizzlies finished the game shooting 41 percent from the floor (35 for 84).
Troy Daniels had 13 points for Memphis and Marc Gasol scored 12. Indiana outrebounded Memphis 50-39 and scored 29 points off 17 Grizzlies turnovers.
Teague also finished with 10 assists for Indiana. The Pacers made 23 of their 40 field goals by way of an assist.
Indiana shot 51 percent and clinched a winning record at home for the 28th consecutive season, the longest active streak in the NBA.
