Recap

PACERS 111, 76ERS 94: Danny Granger scored 20 points and George Hill hit some big 3-pointers as host Indiana finally found a victory over a winning team in snapping Philadelphia’s three-game streak.

David West chipped in 18 points and Tyler Hansbrough scored 14 off the bench for the Pacers, who had not beaten a team currently with a winning record since Feb. 3.

The Pacers, who shot a season-high 57 percent from the floor, began to pull away at the end of the third quarter. Dahntey Jones and Hill each hit a 3-pointer during a 7-0 run to close the frame give Indiana an 83-75 edge heading into the fourth.

The 76ers made a brief run in the fourth quarter, pulling to within 95-88 with 6:37 left, but Indiana responded immediately. West’s jumper sparked a 12-0 run over the next 5:17, with Hill burying a pair of 3-pointers in the middle of the burst to punctuate the victory.

The Pacers had not beaten a top Eastern Conference team since Jan. 29.

Philadelphia (25-18) is now two games behind Indiana (25-16) in the loss column but sits ahead in fourth place in the East due to its lead in the Atlantic Division.
