(MENAFN - Kora) In a battle of top against bottom in the Eastern Conference, the Pacers grabbed a nine-point lead at the end of the first quarter and stretched that to 12 by half-time before Milwaukee fought back in third term.

But with a 35-32 final quarter, Indiana held off the Bucks to hold a 42-13 win-loss record for the season, pulling two wins clear of the second-placed Miami Heat.

Indiana shooting guard Lance Stephenson produced an all-round performance of 24 points, eight assists and nine rebounds, while Paul George (32 points) and David West (30) were also big contributors for the Pacers.

Saturday's loss was Milwaukee's 12th in 14 games and leaves them with a 10-45 record at the bottom of the East.

In Washington, the Wizards edged out the New Orleans Pelicans 94-93 thanks to Nene's last-second dunk.

Nene finished with 30 points, while Marcin Gortat (16 points, 10 rebounds) and John Wall (10 points, 12 assists) both claimed double-doubles for Washington.

Anthony Davis was the Pelicans' best player with 26 points and 11 rebounds, while Anthony Morrow added 18 after starting on the bench.

The win took Washington to a 27-28 record and they remain in fifth in the East, while the Atlanta Hawks moved above the Brooklyn Nets into seventh with a 107-98 win over the New York Knicks.

The Nets failed against Golden State with the Warriors prevailing 93-86.
