Shorthanded Pacers Come Up Short In Philadelphia

Last updated on Tuesday, January 10, 2012

(PHILADELPHIA, PA) - The Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers won their fifth game in a row, defeating the Indiana Pacers 96-86 in Philadelphia.

Andre Iguodala led the Sixers with 20 points with Lou Williams adding 13 and three other players scoring twelve each as Philly improved to 6-2 overall and a perfect 3-0 at the Wells Fargo Center this season.

The Pacers went into the game shorthanded with Danny Granger sidelined with food poisoning and George Hill out with a back injury.

It got worst at the end of the third quarter when Tyler Hansbrough was on the receiving end of an inadvertent elbow from Iguodala.

Hansbrough was hit in the left eye and did not return.

Roy Hibbert led Indiana with 19 points with David West scoring 15 and pulling down eleven rebounds as the Pacers fall to 6-3.

They return home to face the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night.
