Oshae Brissett had 24 points, Justin Anderson had 18 and the Indiana Pacers traveled 129-98 past the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. Brissett sank 8 of 10 shots and all six free throws, and he drove Indiana with nine rebounds.

“I’m still learning and building,” Brissett said. “I’m grateful for the opportunity I’m getting now and I’m trying to capitalize on it. I try not to force anything and try to be my best self.”

The Trail Blazers lost 10 of 11 and recalled four for a line. Josh Hart drove her with 26 points and hit 11 of 13 shots. Trendon Watford had 17 points, Drew Eubanks had 12 and Kris Dunn and Ben McLemore had 11 each.

Hart scored 14 points in the penultimate quarter as Portland took a 34-25 lead to close the deficit at 94-82. Nonetheless, the Pacers had an opportunity to extend their lead in fourth place with a 35-16 advantage.

The Pacers drove by 25 in the main half before going due with a 69-48 halftime lead.

Indiana took a 16-4 lead when the Trail Blazers hit just one of their first nine shots.

“We got off to a slow start with turnovers and misses,” said Watford. “From then on we played quite a bit of catch-up. We’d start making a little run and we’d look up and we’re still 17 down.
