Hibbert's free throw with 7.9 seconds left put the Pacers up 81-78, and Indiana got the ball back when Cleveland's Earl Clark stepped out on an inbounds pass 1 second later.

    David West sealed the win with one free throw with the 5.4 seconds left and Indiana escaped with their seventh win in eight games for the league-leading Pacers (27-6). 

    Cleveland was led by C.J. Miles with 21 points and Waiters who scored 14. All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving missed his third straight game with a bruised left knee. Tristan Thompson added 13 points and 10 rebounds.
