INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Pacers got tired of talking trash.

That left them with plenty of energy to handle the Hawks on Tuesday night.

Paul George scored 27 points, George Hill added 15 in the second half and that suffocating defense that seemed to vanish over the past few weeks was back in force. Atlanta couldn't contend with the Pacers' resurgent combination, falling 101-85 and into a 1-1 tie in the best-of-seven playoff series.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — While his teammates mobbed him after a late goal, Dan Carcillo trash-talked with Flyers fans through the glass before hitting the bench for a celebration.

One fan made an obscene gesture, but Carcillo wasn't fazed in the least.

Derek Stepan, Martin St. Louis, Dan Girardi and Carcillo scored goals, leading the Rangers to a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 3 on Tuesday night.

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday for his guilty plea to a charge that he assaulted a former girlfriend who is the mother of his daughter.

The 27-year-old pleaded guilty nearly a month ago to aggravated assault arising out of a May 1 argument with the child's mother.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Domonic Brown doubled home the go-ahead run in the 10th inning after a costly error by left fielder Carl Crawford, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Tuesday night.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — After Patrick Marleau's fourth career playoff overtime goal silenced Staples Center for maybe the next-to-last time this season, the veteran San Jose Sharks forward attributed his knack for postseason heroics to one simple trait.

"Well, you just try to shoot it on net," Marleau said. "This one was not a hard shot by any means, but you just get it to the net."
