    Myles Turner had 28 points and 10 rebounds and the Indiana Pacers beat the Brooklyn Nets 129-105 Sunday to clinch a playoff berth.

    Solomon Hill had 13 points and 12 rebounds for Indiana while George Hill had 18 points, Ian Mahinmi had 16 and Paul George had 15. The Pacers jumped ahead 17-5 in the first quarter and led by as many as 42 points.
