HOUSTON, March 27 (UPI) -- A 28-point, 13-rebound production from Roy Hibbert Wednesday lifted Indiana to its fifth win in six games -- 100-91 over Houston.

The Pacers raced to a 16-point lead through one period and spent the rest of the evening fighting off the Rockets, who had won their previous three games.

Hibbert made 11-of-17 shots and was backed up by a season-best 21 points from Lance Stephenson. Paul George and Tyler Hansbrough had 16 points each for the Pacers.

James Harden led the Rockets with 22 points, but he went just 6-of-24 from the field. Greg Smith came off the bench to contribute 18 points and 19 rebounds.

Smith's 18 points were one more than the entire Indiana reserve corps could muster.
