INDIANAPOLIS — Brandon Knight had 23 points and seven rebounds, making a key jumper with 22 seconds left, as the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Indiana Pacers 87-81 on Tuesday night.

The Pacers shot 39.7 percent while playing without starters George Hill (bruised left knee), David West (sprained right ankle) and Paul George (fractured leg).

Milwaukee led 43-38 at the half and opened the third quarter on a 10-0 run. The Bucks led by as many as 17. Chris Copeland scored 10 of his 19 points in the third quarter to help Indiana rally within 69-61.

He added one of his four 3-pointers with less than a minute to play, pulling the Pacers within three, before Knight knocked down his 21-footer to help Milwaukee hold on.
