Shorthanded Sixers Fall to Pacers

Paul George scored 28 points, Roy Hibbert played his best all-around game of the season and George Hill had a triple-double to lead the Indiana Pacers past the short-handed Philadelphia 76ers 95-85 on Friday night.

George scored 14 points during a third-quarter flurry that changed the game. Hibbert had 19 points and a season-high 13 rebounds. Hill had 15 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds.

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.

Hill originally was credited with nine rebounds, but an official scoring change after the game gave him the triple-double.
