PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Domantas Sabonis had 23 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Indiana Pacers past the Portland Trail Blazers 111-87.
Malcolm Brogdon added 25 points and seven assists for the Pacers, who improved to 4-1 on the road this season and snapped an 11-game losing streak in Portland. Indiana led by 25 in the second quarter and maintained a double-digit advantage the rest of the way.
CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard each scored 22 for the Blazers.
The loss was costly: During the third quarter, center Jusuf Nurkic could be seen holding his right wrist after swiping at the ball, before falling on it during the third quarter.
At a timeout he went to to the locker room and did not return. The Trail Blazers later announced he had sustained a fracture.
