Pacers Host Sixers

Last updated on Wednesday, December 19, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers are back in action tonight as they host the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Pacers are coming off back-to-back wins over Miami and New York to get back over .500 at 13-and-12.

Mike Dunleavy scored a career-high 36 points in Monday night's win over the Knicks while Jermaine O'Neal has been strong, averaging 19 points and 7.5 rebounds in the nine games since he returned from knee and calf injuries.

The Sixers are 10-and-14 but have come alive of late, winning five of their last six games. One of the keys to Philly's recent success has been the play of center Samuel Dalembert. Dalembert has averaged more than eleven rebounds over the Sixers' past ten games and is fifth in the league in blocked shots, swatting an average of 2.5 shots per contest.

Tonight's game is the first of three between the Pacers and Sixers this season and the only one at Conseco Fieldhouse.
