Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Paul George scored 27 points as the Indiana Pacers got their post All-Star break schedule off to a roaring start with a 125-91 trouncing of the New York Knicks from Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

George added eight rebounds while making good on 11-of-19 field goal attempts in leading Indiana to its highest scoring output of the season. David West contributed 18 points and nine boards to the rout, while Lance Stephenson registered 14 points in a game the Pacers never trailed at any stage.

The win also moved Indiana within just a half-game of the slumping Knicks for the second-best record in the Eastern Conference.

Tyson Chandler compiled 19 points and 11 rebounds for New York, which limped into the break off consecutive home losses to the Los Angeles Clippers and Toronto and mustered a subpar 33.7 shooting percentage against Indiana's stingy defense.

Carmelo Anthony went just 7-of-21 from the field in finishing with 15 points, over 13 below his season average.
