76ers Vs. Pacers: Philadelphia Looks For Fifth Straight Victory

The Philadelphia 76ers host the Indiana Pacers Monday at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers (5-2) are searching for their fifth straight victory, a feat they haven't accomplished since 2010.

The Philadelphia 76ers look to continue their best start to a season in 11 season Monday, as they host the Indiana Pacers in a Eastern Conference contest at the Wells Fargo Center (7 p.m. on COMCAST). The Sixers (5-2) will be looking to extended their current winning streak to five games, something that hasn't happened almost two years, while the Pacers (6-2) are winners in three of their last four games.

The last time the 76ers won five straight games was Jan.-Feb. of 2010, and the chances of accomplishing that feat is good if Philadelphia continues its scoring streak of averaging 100.6 points per game.

Unfortunately, Philadelphia could be without center Spencer Hawes (12.6 points and 10.6 rebounds per game) who strained his back Saturday in the Sixers victory, 97-62, blowout of the Toronto Raptors.
