"Tonight, we did a great job answering their runs," George said. "We were able to fight them off and ultimately get a win."
Williams shot 10 of 14 for the game. The bench scored 22 of the Warriors' 27 points in the second period. Golden State went on a 21-1 run in the period to turn a 36-25 deficit into a 46-37 lead, but allowed Indiana to shoot 51.2 percent from the field in the second half.
"I've got two teams right now: a great offensive team and a good defensive team," Smart said. "I have two of them in the middle and I have to figure out how to splice that and turn them into one again."
The Pacers also outrebounded Golden State, 24-17, in the second half.
"I think we're focused on what we're trying to do," Curry said of the Warriors' defense. "We have a lot of effort. We have to look at film and see what teams are doing. I'm trying to find an answer. I don't really have one."
The Warriors were playing the second game of a season-high, seven-game road trip. ... Granger's perfect night was one shy of the franchise record for free throws in a game without a miss. He made 17 of 17 from the line in 2008 to set a record he shares with Billy Knight.
