76ers lose fourth straight game, fall to Pacers 118-113
The 76ers did not get off to the start that they wanted to on this road trip, falling to the Indiana Pacers, 118-113. The scoreboard makes this look closer than the game was, with the 76ers trailing for nearly the entirety of the game. Tobias Harris looked to be in near-perfect game form tonight after being out due to COVID-19.
Harris led the way with 32 points, scoring in all aspects, including ten free throws and three made shots from the perimeter. Right behind him was once again Tyrese Maxey. Maxey has been dominant these last several games, but it has unfortunately not been enough. The young guard finished the night with 24 points on 10/15 shooting.
Georges Niang and Furkan Korkmaz struggled from deep, making just two of their combined seven attempts. Danny Green also left early with his hamstring injury and hopefully will be able to make a speedy recovery. Even with all that, the 76ers were 52% from deep on 23 shots.
Justin Holiday exploded off the bench for the Pacers, dropping 27 points with six made three-pointers. Myles Turner had his way with Andre Drummond, leading the Pacers starters with 20 points.
Last night’s loss extended the 76ers’ losing streak to four games, with several of the players remaining out from COVID-19 expected to return soon. The Sixers will have two days off for the first time in a while, returning to play late Tuesday night against the 8-5 Utah Jazz.
