INDIANAPOLIS — Monta Ellis scored 26 points and Paul George added 23 to help the Indiana Pacers end the San Antonio Spurs’ eight-game winning streak with a 99-91 victory Monday night.

The Pacers led by double digits most of the night and hung on after San Antonio trimmed the deficit to three several times in the final two minutes.

It’s the second time in 17 meetings since 2008 that the Pacers have beaten the Spurs.

“We were just dialed in; we were very focused tonight. That’s why we won,” George said. “It just came down to you know, I know I needed a better effort for us to win tonight.”

GRIZZLIES 106, CAVALIERS 103: Tony Allen scored a season-high 26 points and Memphis, despite playing without four injured starters, won at Cleveland.

Vince Carter made four free throws in the final 13.4 seconds for Memphis, which had more coaches than players on the bench.

HORNETS 108, TIMBERWOLVES 103: Kemba Walker scored 21 of his 34 points in the third quarter and Charlotte held on at home for its fourth straight win.

Reserve Al Jefferson added 20 points, Marvin Williams had 15 and Nicolas Batum 11 for the Hornets.

BULLS 100, BUCKS: Pau Gasol had 12 points, 17 rebounds, 13 assists and five blocked shots, and banged-up Chicago won at home with Jimmy Butler sidelined by swelling in his left knee.

The Bulls had six players score in double figures in their second straight win after a four-game slide. Derrick Rose scored 22 points, Mike Dunleavy had 18, and E’Twaun Moore finished with 16 points.

PELICANS 115, KINGS 112: Anthony Davis had 31 points and 11 rebounds, and New Orleans came back from a 17-point, second-half deficit at home.

CLIPPERS 109, MAVERICKS 90: Chris Paul scored 18 of his 27 points when Los Angeles took control in the third quarter, and DeAndre Jordan had 23 points and 20 rebounds as the Clippers won at Dallas.


BUCKS: Point guard Michael Carter-Williams will have left hip surgery and miss the rest of the season.

PACERS: Indiana signed point guard Ty Lawson, who was arrested twice last year on drunken-driving charges, once in Denver and once in Los Angeles, and was traded from Denver to Houston last summer.
