Paul George had 24 points and nine rebounds and Lance Stephenson added 16 points, leading the Indiana Pacers to a 114-81 rout of the Houston Rockets on Friday night.

The Pacers ended their only two-game losing streak of the season and maintained their grip on the Eastern Conference's best record (21-5) with their most lopsided win of the season.

Dwight Howard finished with 19 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks for the Rockets. James Harden, the NBA's No. 6 scorer, was held in check most of the night by George, finishing with 12 points on 3-of-14 shooting.

Former Indiana All-Star Danny Granger received a standing ovation when he made his season debut late in the first quarter and fans chanted his name when he made his first basket, a 3-pointer, early in the fourth.
