Indiana trailed by four points at half-time, but came back to win thanks to 27 points and 10 rebounds from their All-Star swingman Paul George.

Meanwhile the Toronto Raptors had their first playoff win since 2008, squaring their series with the Brooklyn Nets with a 100-95 home win.

The Raptors guard, Demar DeRozan, had 17 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter to secure the crucial win before the series heads to Brooklyn for game three on Saturday
