SAN ANTONIO -- This was no ordinary victory for Paul George and the Indiana Pacers. Yaya Toure Jersey . They know how difficult it is to beat the San Antonio Spurs. George scored 28 points and Indiana defeated San Antonio 111-100 on Saturday night, snapping an 11-game skid against the Spurs. "It means a lot," George said. "We havent won here since 2002. So it definitely means that were onto something. Something great is going on in here, if we just continue to keep on this path, we have a positive future." David West had 20 points and Lance Stephenson scored 15 for the Pacers, who enjoyed a 41-34 rebounding edge. Roy Hibbert and Luis Scola each had 12 points and 10 boards. "I couldnt be happier with how they played, particularly in the second and third quarter," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "Second quarter, getting back in the game, but in the third quarter, really busting it open. Tough to pick a star in the game with as many contributions as we got. Just great balance and a great team win." Kawhi Leonard scored 18 points for San Antonio, which has dropped three of five. Manu Ginobili added 16 points, Tony Parker had 13 and Tim Duncan finished with 10. Indiana had lost 12 straight in San Antonio and appeared headed for a bakers dozen early on. Ginobilis 3-pointer with 9:46 remaining in the first half gave the Spurs a 35-22 lead. It was their largest lead, but also the start of the teams fall as the Pacers starting five overwhelmed their counterparts. "We give a lot of credit to Indiana," Parker said. "They just played better than us." Indiana closed the first half on a 30-18 run and opened the second half with a 12-2 spree. "We had a good first quarter," Duncan said. "Second quarter they started making some shots and we werent able to keep up. We went cold, they heated up and got a little lead there. We just couldnt recover." Georges 3 gave the Pacers an 85-62 lead with 46.3 seconds left in the third. He was 4 for 4 from long range and also had six assists. George had nine points in the third quarter, and the teams starters had all but two of Indianas points in a 35-17 period. "We knew it was a long game," George said. "This is one team that never thinks were out of a game, no matter what the circumstances are. But we knew that we had to get stops and we had to match their energy." San Antonio held a 23-8 edge in second-chance points and a 34-26 advantage in points in the paint, but Indiana attempted 22 more free throws. The Pacers went 26 for 28 at the line, compared to 5 for 6 for the Spurs. "If you lose, you were less aggressive, and you didnt have the effort; thats all baloney," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "Thats psycho-babble. You dont think Patty Mills and those guys played hard? You dont think Timmy tried to play hard? Thats silly. They played better than we did. Its got nothing to do with effort." NOTES: The Pacers last victory against the Spurs was 100-99 on April 1, 2007, in Indianapolis. Their last victory in San Antonio was 92-82 on Jan. 4, 2002. ...

He finished with two points and two rebounds in eight minutes. ... San Antonio had not played since a 102-100 victory over Atlanta. Wednesdays game against Minnesota in Mexico City was postponed due to an electrical fire. ...

Chicago has scored five goals or more in winning each of its past three games to match another three-game run this season from Oct. 11-15. The defending Stanley Cup champions also have suffered just one regulation loss over their last 11 contests, going 8-1-2 during that stretch. After pounding the Jets by a 5-1 score in Winnipeg on Saturday, the Blackhawks return home to face a Flames team they have dominated in recent years. Calgary has lost 10 straight in Chicago and hasnt earned a victory in the Windy City since beating the Blackhawks, 4-2, on March 16, 2008. Chicago won all three encounters against the Flames last season and has claimed four of five and six of eight overall in this series. The Blackhawks gave up a goal just over five minutes into Saturdays game at Winnipeg, but then scored five unanswered goals, including three in a 4:55 span early in the second period to chase Winnipeg goaltender Ondrej Pavelec. Corey Crawford made 26 saves to get the win, riding an offensive barrage to a his third win in as many starts. Nick Leddy and Brandon Bollig each tallied once and picked up an assist for Chicago. "We had a good start to that second period, first period we were lucky to be even there, (Crawford) kept us in the game," said Chicago coach Joel Quenneville. Crawford is 3-2-0 with a 2.81 goals against average in five career games against the Flames. Chicagos backup goaltender Niikolai Khabibulin, who has not looked sharp in his three outings this season, is 23-13-2 with two ties and a 2.

Calgary enters Sunday on a two-game slide and the club has lost six of eight since beginning the season 3-0-2. The Flames were last in action on Friday, when they lost a 4-3 decision against the visiting Detroit Red Wings. Despite falling behind 2-0 in the first period, Calgary managed to tie the score with a pair of goals in the second. However, Joakim Andersson broke the tie for Detroit just 85 seconds into the final stanza and Justin Abdelkader followed with the game-winner. Curtis Glencross, Sean Monahan and Chris Butler all scored for the Flames, who have dropped four of five. Joey MacDonald gave up all four goals on 22 shots in the loss. Glencross scored with 10 seconds left in regulation to account for the one- goal margin. "I thought that we didnt skate like the way we could," said Calgary head coach Bob Hartley. "The way that the Wings play, they kind of slow down the play and I felt that we got caught a bit especially with scoring two goals, they kind of put us back on our heels a little bit. I just felt that we didnt have our usual jump." Calgary, which is 2-4-1 as the visiting team this season, is kicking off a four-game road trip on Sunday. The Flames also will make stops in Minnesota, St. Louis and Colorado during this trek.
