INDIANAPOLIS — Roy Hibbert had 20 points, 15 rebounds and five blocked shots to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 95-80 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.

Hibbert grabbed a career-high 11 offensive rebounds as the Pacers (20-14) won their seventh straight home game. George Hill added 14 points after missing Indiana's previous three games with a groin injury.

"Roy Hibbert had an exceptional night on both ends of the court," Indiana coach Frank Vogel said.

The Bucks scored the first six points of the third to grab a 53-52 lead. But the Pacers responded with an 8-0 run and cruised from there.

Indiana, which lost in Boston on Friday night, hasn't lost consecutive games since falling to Denver on Dec. 7 and at Oklahoma City on Dec. 9.

Monta Ellis led the Bucks with 21 points. Brandon Jennings scored 12 points, Larry Sanders had 12 points and 12 rebounds and John Henson collected 13 boards, but the Bucks were outrebounded 59-39 by the Pacers.

Lance Stephenson and David West added 10 points apiece for the Pacers, who have won three straight home games against the Bucks.

Vogel praised Hill for his return to the court.

"Toughness effort by George Hill, playing with some limitations with his groin, toughed it out," he said.
