Hornets take advantage of Pacers' poor defense in 117-95 win

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb got a chance to reminisce Wednesday night.

With Walker exploiting open lanes to the basket and Lamb making open shots from outside, the two former college teammates recreated the combination that helped UConn win a national championship five years ago.

This time, Walker finished with 25 points and seven rebounds, Lamb scored 16 and together they led the Charlotte Hornets to a 117-95 blowout of the Pacers for their third consecutive win - and first at Indiana in almost 7 1/2 years.
