INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 4 (UPI) -- Paul George logged a double-double of 24 points and 10 rebounds Saturday, helping rally the Indiana Pacers over New Orleans 99-82.

The Pacers trailed by as many as 14 points but held New Orleans to just 33 points in the second half, improving to 16-1 at home.

Lance Stephenson contributed 19 points and Danny Granger provided 13 points in nearly 21 minutes off the bench as Indiana rebounded from Wednesday's 95-82 loss at Toronto.

Eric Gordon put in 21 points for the Pelicans, who were playing without leading scorer Ryan Anderson.

Anderson was not with the team after sustaining a cervical stinger during Friday's win over the Celtics.
