Indiana topped Philly in a lopsided win on their third straight night of basketball.
The Indiana Pacers were clearly gassed, but managed to muster up enough to shut down the Philadelphia 76ers en route to their fifth straight win, going 3-0 in their league mandated back-to-back-to-back. Roy Hibbert led the way for the Pacers in a night where there was no official box score during the game. According to the Associated Press, Hibbert finished with 16 & 13.
After the game, Hibbert expressed his frustration with the scheduling, but noted that he and the team used it as fuel to win the game. Four Pacers players reached double figures, led by Hibbert, with Paul George, George Hill, and David West each scoring 15 points. The 69 is a season low in points allowed for the Pacers, holding Philly to 34% shooting according to SI.com. Philly was led by their All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday with 17.
