Thompson finished the game with a team-high 25 points on 10-of-20 shooting. He added five rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot. He was especially good in the fourth quarter when he absolutely took over, scoring 16 of the Warriors’ 25 points.
Stephen Curry shot just seven-of-18 from the field, but still managed to score 19 points, grab eight rebounds, dish out six assists and record two steals.
David West led all scorers with 27 points and seven rebounds while Paul George scored 26 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and dished out four assists. Roy Hibbert and George Hill scored 10 points apiece.
The game was highly competitive throughout. George scored the last six Pacers’ points, twice tying the game, the final tie coming with just 1:06 to go. After Curry stepped out of bounds and George missed a jumper, Thompson hit the winner.
The Warriors are now 37-24 and the Pacers are 46-14.
