A pair of costly turnovers in the final 30 seconds cost the Indiana Pacers a win against the Philadelphia 76ers, snapping their five game winning streak and leaving a bad taste in their mouth after having fought back from a 15-point first half deficit.
The Pacers had 20 turnovers, leading to 23 Philadelphia points and were outscored at the free throw line 32-21. Those numbers erased Indiana’s shooting advantage, where they shot 55% for the game, matching the Sixers from deep with 11 threes.
T.J. Warren led the Pacers with 29 points on 11-19 shooting while Malcolm Brogdon scored 28. All five Philly starters reached double figures, led by Joel Embiid with 32.
The Pacers are back in action on Monday, when they face the Memphis Grizzlies in Memphis.
