Hansbrough seals Pacers' win
ORLANDO -- Roy Hibbert and Tyler Hansbrough dominated in the paint with a combined 47 points and 12 rebounds as the Indiana Pacers earned their second straight victory at the 2009 Orlando Pro Summer League with Tuesday's 91-88 triumph over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Hansbrough, who recorded 23 points, iced the win with two free throws with 2.3 seconds remaining. Hibbert established himself on the interior and finished with a game-high 24 points.
Russell Westbrook, who exploded late to give the Thunder a lead in the final two minutes, guided Oklahoma City with 22 points and eight assists. Rookie sensation James Harden posted 19 points, but missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Brandon Rush, who along with Hansbrough are just two of three players competing in the summer league who have won collegiate national championships, did not play for Indiana due to a sore left knee.
Other notable performers included Trey Johnson, who scored 13 points, and Josh McRobets who chipped in 10.
Serge Ibaka and D.J. White, who were each in foul trouble throughout, combined for 21 points for OKC.
Indiana will take on Utah on Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET, while Oklahoma City will clash with Boston at 5 p.m.• Complete coverage at OrlandoMagic.com | Live streaming at OrlandoMagic.com
