Home or away, the Indiana Pacers have found themselves in a mini-slump.
After a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night, the Pacers (40-26) returned to action on the road in Philadelphia (25-40), but with no different result. The 76ers outlasted Indiana for a 98-91 victory, with Spencer Hawes dominating the paint with 18 points and a career-high 16 rebounds.
Jrue Holiday led all scorers with 27 points and 12 assists, giving the 76ers just their third victory in fifteen games. The loss perhaps points out one of the only flaws in Indiana’s impressive season so far, as the Pacers have dropped to 14-18 on the road this season.
The Pacers return to action Monday night when they travel to Cleveland.
