Despite an ugly start, the Indiana Pacers got a big lift from their bench as they worked towards a lopsided win over the Philadelphia 76ers. Indiana used a 35 point second quarter to open the game up, extending their lead to 24 points in the fourth quarter, topping Philadelphia 106-95. Indiana scored 28 points off of turnovers, coming up with 13 steals.
The Pacers were led by Rodney Stuckey who had a season best 30 points, but left the game late with an ankle injury after coming down badly after a three. The loss of Stuckey was softened with the win, but he was unable to put pressure on the ankle. C.J. Miles had 17 to lead the starting unit, getting help from Luis Scola off the bench, who had 16 points, seven rebounds, and three steals. Nerlens Noel flirted with a triple double of 12 points, nine rebounds, and nine blocks.
