INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Myles Turner scored 25 points, hitting 7 of 10 3-pointers, and had 13 rebounds in the Indiana Pacers’ 111-98 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday night.

Turner scored the first eight points of the game — and the Pacers never trailed.

Caris LeVert added 21 points for Indiana. RJ Barrett led New York with 23 points, and Julius Randle added 18 points and 14 rebounds.

The Knicks pulled to 85-83 on Derrick Rose’s basket, but the Pacers scored the next five points to regain control.
