The Indiana Pacers jolted to life halfway through the third quarter, overcoming an 11-point deficit to storm back against the Philadelphia 76ers, tying the game heading into the fourth. After going back and forth in the final quarter, the Pacers closed out the win behind the leadership of Malcolm Brogdon, who had a team high 21 points in his return from injury.
The Pacers scored the final seven points of the game, coming up with crucial stops and big defensive plays, including a timely block by T.J. Warren on Tobias Harris with under 30 seconds remaining. Warren also scored 21, the lone Pacer to shoot above 50% on a night when as a team, Indiana shot just 38%.
Myles Turner (14 & 10) and Domantas Sabonis (10 & 16) each had double doubles in the win. Justin Holiday led a big bench push with 14, featuring crucial second half minutes from T.J. McConnell.
Indiana moves to 5th with the win, setting up a home-and-home against the Minnesota Timberwolves starting Wednesday.
