INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Derrick White helped San Antonio break away early by scoring 16 of his 25 points in the first quarter and leading the Spurs to a 109-94 victory at Indiana. Jakob Poeltel added 16 points as San Antonio won its second straight to stay in position for the play-in round. The Pacers were led by Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LeVert who each had 18 points in Indiana’s third straight loss — this one minus three opening-night starters. White’s scoring flurry allowed San Antonio to take a 36-21 lead after one quarter and the Spurs never let Indiana get closer than nine.
