NBA: Indiana Pacers at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Indiana Pacers held on late again to win another game against an Eastern Conference Playoff opponent, topping the Philadelphia 76ers on the road. Indiana led nearly the entire game, but needed to step up defensively in the final seconds. Victor Oladipo and Bojan Bogdanovic finished 5-32 shooting but came up with the win-sealing plays after Oladipo was whistled for an offensive foul with seven seconds left.

Joel Embiid missed the ensuing three point attempt, allowing Oladipo to force a jump ball with Dario Saric. Oladipo batted the tip, creating a loose ball that Bogdanovic knocked off of Ben Simmons out of bounds, giving Indiana the ball and the win. It was sweet redemption for their offensive struggles, but the Pacers were able to win with contributions across the board.

Myles Turner led the way with 25 points and six rebounds. Thaddeus Young had a 19 point, 10 rebound double double and Cory Joseph reached double figures with 13. Off the bench, Lance Stephenson scored 11 and Darren Collison had 10, with Trevor Booker pulling in six rebounds, three offensive, to go with five points.

The lone concern leaving the game was an injury to Domantas Sabonis. Sabonis was sent to the locker room with a sprained ankle and did not return.
