Indiana Pacers small forward T.J. Warren got his revenge Wednesday night.

Playing in Phoenix for the first time since being traded to Indiana (along with a second-round pick) for only cash considerations, the former Pheonix Sun impressed in his return.

Making 11 of his 18 shots (61.1%), Warren led the way for the Pacers in Indiana’s 112-87 win over the Suns. He also added three rebounds, three steals and one block, while committing just one turnover in 30 minutes of action.
