Pacers Dominate 76ers, Sims Dropped A Third Time

Last updated on Thursday, December 20, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Marquis Daniels scored a season-high 26 points as the Indiana Pacers picked up their third-straight win, defeating the Philadelphia 76ers 102-85.

Jermaine O'Neal and Mike Dunleavy added 19 points apiece for the Pacers, who improve to 14-and-12 on the season.

Andre Iguodala and Andre Miller led the Sixers with 19 points each while Samuel Dalembert finished with 15 points and 14 rebounds as Philadelphia falls to 10-and-15.

Before Wednesday's game, the Pacers announced that they have released center Courtney Sims - again. It is the third time the Pacers have cut the rookie from the University of Michigan this season. Sims' constant reappearances on the Indiana roster has been due to injuries to the Pacers' big men this season.

Center David Harrison missed the second half of last night's win over Philadelphia due to back spasms.

The Pacers return to the road Friday night as they face the Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis. You can hear all of the action starting at 7:30pm on South Central Indiana's sports leader, 1340 AM WBIW.
