The Indiana Pacers finally have a halftime lead, just their fourth of the year, in a high scoring affair against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Pacers have had to contend with a short-handed, but very active Sixers team that despite only shooting 36% has shot the ball 50 times thanks in part to their 13 offensive rebounds. It's not for lack of effort the Pacers have allowed Philadelphia to stay in the game as Evan Turner and Michael Carter-Williams are each in double figures with 15 and 14 respectively.
Three Pacers are in double figures led by Roy Hibbert who has 13 and five rebounds. Lance Stephenson has been able to attack at will, scoring 11 on 5-7 shooting, despite three turnovers. Paul George has 10 in the first half for the first time in nine games. The Pacers have struggled from the free throw line early, but tightened up to go 13-18 in the half.
