INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Roy Hibbert had 20 points, 15 rebounds and five blocked shots to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 95-80 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.

Hibbert grabbed a career-high 11 offensive rebounds as the Pacers (20-14) won their seventh straight home game. George Hill added 14 points after missing Indiana's previous three games with a groin injury.

The Bucks scored the first six points of the third to grab a 53-52 lead. But the Pacers responded with an 8-0 run and cruised from there.

Indiana, which lost in Boston on Friday night, hasn't lost consecutive games since falling to Denver on Dec. 7 and at Oklahoma City on Dec. 9.

Monta Ellis led the Bucks with 21 points.
