If the first six weeks of the season have been a roller-coaster ride for the Pacers, a good part of Wednesday's game against the Bulls undoubtedly represented a low point.

The Indiana Pacers avoided an upset as Victor Oladipo drained a go-ahead 3-pointer with 31.1 seconds left in regulation to lift Indiana to a 98-96 victory over the Chicago Bulls.

John Oliver grills Dustin Hoffman over sexual harassment claims
The discussion was largely calm and cordial, though one person in the audience yelled at Oliver to "Move on". I said a stupid thing, but I said it in the midst of the crew, and they said their stupid things.

"This one, it stings a lot", coach Fred Hoiberg said.

From there, IN began to clamp down on defense, limiting the Bulls to 13 points IN the final quarter and getting the key stops that were largely missing IN the first half.

The Blue & Gold were able to trim the deficit to 11 on two occasions but never got back within single digits before halftime, trailing to 55-39 heading into the break. Instead, Indiana just got going late. Myles Turner then stripped the ball from Robin Lopez and tossed an outlet pass to a streaking Bogdanovic for an easy slam that made it 94-92 and forced a Bulls timeout. And Turner stuffed the stat sheet, finishing with 11 points, seven rebounds, six assists, and four blocks. The Bulls continued into the second quarter, pushing their lead up to 43-26 after threes from Paul Zipser and Valentine.

IN dropped games at Houston and Toronto before coming home on Monday and breezing past the New York Knicks 115-97 in the opener of a six-game homestand. Lopez and Valentine each had a dozen in the half as the Bulls were seven of 15 on threes and Dunn had six first half assists.

Young has scored in double figures in 20 of Indiana's 25 games this season, scoring 20 or more in two of those contests.
