Pacers survive scare with 99-95 double OT win over Wizards

WISH-TV

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — C.J. Miles scored 25 points, George Hill added 24 and together they keyed a 7-2 spurt to open the second overtime Tuesday night as Indiana kept its playoff hopes alive with a 99-95 victory over Washington.

The Pacers (38-43) have won six straight and will make a fifth straight playoff appearance if they win at Memphis — or if Brooklyn loses to Orlando — on the final night of the regular season.

Martin Gortat and Bradley Beal each scored 19 points for the Wizards (46-35).

It was a grind for the Pacers, who struggled shooting all night and trailed 70-61 deficit with 7:07 left.

They rallied to take a late 79-75 lead, then Washington forced overtime. Indiana didn’t lead again until Hill’s mid-range jumper 23 seconds into the second overtime made it 87-85. And Hill finally sealed it with a 3 with 27.8 seconds left.
