The Pacers got big effort from their starters to top the 76ers.
The Indiana Pacers topped the Philadelphia 76ers on a 9-2 run in the final two minutes to grab a nice home win, moving them to 12-11 on the year. The two teams went back and forth early, a collapse at the end of the first half giving the Sixers are 6-0 run. Indiana would use an 8-0 run to steal momentum back, spending the rest of the night holding off Evan Turner and the resilient 76ers. It was a big night for a number of Pacers, four reaching double figures.
Paul George had a game high 28, moving his six game average to 25.0 points per game. Roy Hibbert had 10 first quarter points, and played very well, finishing with 19 points and 14 turnovers, shooting 9-16 from the field. George Hill almost fell one rebound shy of a triple double (a rebound Gerald Green grabbed), but statisticians found a rebound in the second quarter they credited to Hill after the game to give him a 15/10/10 line for the night. David West struggled shooting, but finished with 14. Evan Turner led the Sixers with 22 points and 10 rebounds.
