The Philadelphia 76ers were trying to make it four straight wins on Wednesday night. The Indiana Pacers stopped them, putting together a streak of their own. The Sixers lost 111-94 on the road.
The Sixers shot well from the field, hitting 52.6 percent of their shots. What hurt most of all was a lopsided Pacers' advantage on the boards. Indiana out-rebounded Phiadelphia 37-26.
Another small number that made a big difference for the Sixers was the eight fouls committed by the Pacers. By comparison, Philly fouled 21 times, and Indiana took advantage of the extra shots, hitting 18-22 free throws.
Evan Turner led the team with 21 points, and tied for a team-best five rebounds. Jrue Holiday had 17 points.
Danny Granger led the Pacers with 20 points.
The Sixers are back home on Friday night, but with a tough game against the Miami Heat.
