Indiana Pacers Win Second Game in a Row–99-86 over 76ers

+Read full article

The Philadelphia 76ers have won all three games thus far, losing 99-86 for the second win for the Indiana Pacers.

After going back and forth for part of the first half, the Pacers made a move and took the initiative – Darren Collison provided a spark in the third quarter, dunking on (literally) Lou Williams (one of the two must-see highlights from the game; you will need to see the T.J. Ford pass for the other dunk on the 76ers as well).

Now 2-1 on the season and heading to Philadelphia for another game with the Sixers on Wednesday, the Indiana Pacers were very impressive Saturday night.  Edging the Sixers in rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks helped with the slightly lower shooting percentage for the Pacers (41.6% to 43.9%).

Danny Granger led with 22 points, where Hibbert, Dunleavy, and Collison all ended up in the mid-teens in terms of scoring.  Roy Hibbert had a double-double on the night with 14 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, and one block – quite the stat line for the big man who is averaging just under five assists per game thus far.

The home opener was electric for the rejuvenated home crowd who gave a standing ovation as time expired.  This game was very good to see for Pacers fans – who boast a unique blend of young talent which seems to be working right now.

Jeff Foster was inactive, reportedly for matchup purposes – according to Jim O’Brien.

The young Pacers look to make it three straight – and two in a row – with a rematch with the 76ers Wednesday.  Follow PacersCentral on Twitter and Facebook for more coverage before the next game.
