Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert, right, skirmishes with Golden State Warriors forward David Lee

Pacers beat Warriors after 4th-quarter scuffle

INDIANAPOLIS — David West had 28 points and seven rebounds, and the Indiana Pacers overcome the ejection of Roy Hibbert following a fourth-quarter scuffle to beat the Golden State Warriors 108-97 on Tuesday night.

West also was called for a technical foul, along with the Warriors' David Lee, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, for the altercation that began with 6:10 remaining in the game.

It began when Lee and Hibbert exchanged shoves under the basket after a missed shot. Curry tried to push Hibbert away and was shoved to the court as the fight went from the key to the baseline.

George Hill had 23 points and seven assists, and Paul George had 21 points and 11 rebounds for the Pacers (36-21), who have won five straight.

Curry scored a season-high 38 points and Thompson had 13 for the Warriors (33-24), who had a three-game winning streak snapped.

The Warriors took the lead at the start of the second half when Curry scored to put Golden State ahead 59-58.

Indiana's Danny Granger played 18 ½ minutes and scored five points off the bench in his first home game this season.

Pacers coach Frank Vogel said he wants to get Granger back in the starting lineup and is looking at a possible two-week timetable, but said he will review it week-by-week.

Curry hit a jumper and a 3-pointer and the Warriors took a 5-0 lead to start the game. Hill, who had 15 points in the first quarter, hit two 3-pointers, including one to tie the game with 4:19 left in the period.

With the Warriors trailing 52-43, Curry hit a 3-pointer and two more field goals before Lee scored on a layup to get them within 54-53 at halftime.
