INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Klay Thompson made a 12-foot turnaround jumper with 0.6 seconds left, and the Golden State Warriors held off Indiana 98-96 Tuesday night to hand the Pacers only their fourth home loss this season.

Thompson scored 16 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter. Stephen Curry finished with 19 points for the Warriors, who have won five of six. It was their first win at Indiana in seven years.

David West led Indiana with 27 points and Paul George added 26 as the Pacers' five-game winning streak ended.

The Warriors were in control most of the night, taking the lead at 10-8 and holding it until midway through the third quarter. They regained control with a 7-0 run late in the third and led 92-79 with 6:23 to play.

But the Pacers tied the score at 94 with a 12-0 run.

After Thompson put Golden State ahead again, George's long 3-pointer at the buzzer was short.
