Oakland, California:

George Hill scored on a three-point play with 1.8 seconds remaining and the Indiana Pacers held off a late charge by Golden State to beat the Warriors 94-91 on Friday night.

Hill stole the ball from Monta Ellis, who had beaten the Pacers exactly one year and one day ago with a last-second shot, then raced the length of the floor for a layup. Hill was fouled by Stephen Curry and made the free throw for the final margin.

Golden State called a quick timeout and got the ball to Curry coming out of the break, but his 29-footer at the buzzer bounced off the back of the rim.

Danny Granger had 26 points, and Roy Hibbert added 10 points and a career-high 16 rebounds for Indiana, which has won four of five.

Ellis finished with 25 points and six assists.
