ORLANDO — The Pacers are unbeaten in their first two exhibition games in Orlando.

Sunday, Indiana trailed by as many as 13-points in the first half, but came back in the second for a 118-111 win over Dallas.

The Pacers went up by as many as 12-points in the fourth quarter, only to see the Mavs cut the lead to two with less than two minutes to play. But Indiana closed out the game with a 9-4 run for the win.

T.J. Warren had 20-points to lead the Pacers. Malcolm Brogdon finished with 17. Victor Oladipo played 28 minutes and contributed 16-points.

Although Indiana's top rebounder, Domantas Sabonis, missed the game with a foot ailment, the Pacers still managed to out rebound Dallas 53-44.

Indiana has one more exhibition game before the regular season resumes next Saturday. The 22 teams in Orlando will each play eight games to determine playoff seeding.
