Sixers Beat Pacers 109-106 In OT

The Sixers beat the Pacers 109-106 in OT, but will have to wait at least more game before clinching a playoff spot. The Sixers needed a win and a Bucks loss tonight, but Milwaukee beat New Jersey to stay alive.

The Sixers got 20 points from Elton Brand and 19 from Lou Williams as they halted the Pacers’ 7 game win streak. Jrue Holiday, Thaddeus Young and Andre Iguodala were all in double figures as well.

The win pulls the Sixers even with the Knicks for the 7th best record in the East. The Knicks do, however, hold the tiebreaker so the Sixers would need to finish above them to jump up a spot. Of course, all that means is getting to face the Bulls rather than the Heat so… It probably doesn’t matter all that much.

Next is up the Nets on Monday. The NBA playoffs start next weekend.
