Philadelphia played without guard Jrue Holiday, who sat out with a sprained left foot. Evan Turner scored 20 points and Spencer Hawes had 18 off the bench to lead the 76ers.

It wasn't enough.

After giving up six points to Philadelphia in the final 3.8 seconds of the first half, the Pacers used a 16-4 third-quarter run to take a 60-52 lead and never trailed again.

George Hill had 15 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds for Indiana, barely falling short of a triple-double.
