Tobias Harris returned for Thursday’s game from health and safety protocols and recorded 19 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. The Pacers improved to 4-1 when holding opponents to 100 points or fewer with Thursday’s win, but they are just 1-7 when allowing 101 points or more.
Malcolm Brogdon, Indiana’s leading scorer on the season at 23.6 points per game, recorded 30 in Thursday’s win. T.J. McConnell scored in double figures for the fourth consecutive game and fifth time in the Pacers’ past six, registering a season-best 21 points off the bench at Utah.
McConnell’s been an X-factor in recent wins, scoring 18 points Nov. 7 at Sacramento and posting a double-double with 10 points and 10 assists in a Nov. 1 defeat of San Antonio.
