Recap

Pacers 95, 76ers 85: Paul George scored 14 of his 28 points during the third quarter as host Indiana recorded its fourth win in six games.

Roy Hibbert collected 19 points and 13 rebounds and George Hill recorded a triple-double with 15 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds as the Pacers took advantage of the absence of 76ers leading scorer Jrue Holiday (strained foot).

Evan Turner shifted to point guard in place of Holiday and finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Spencer Hawes added a season-high 18 off the bench for Philadelphia, which has dropped three in a row on the road and five of its last seven overall.

Hawes drained long jumpers to bring the 76ers within three on two occasions in the fourth quarter. Indiana answered both threats, with George drilling a 3-pointer to double the advantage at 89-83 with two minutes remaining.

Hill extended the cushion to nine with another 3-pointer as Indiana improved to 7-3 at home.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Philadelphia secured a 44-42 halftime lead after taking advantage of a pair of errant inbounds passes by David West in the final five seconds of the second quarter. The 76ers scored off both miscues. ... With Holiday sidelined, Dorell Wright earned his fifth start of the season and finished with nine points. ... Indiana's Lance Stephenson sat out with a right ankle injury, though coach Frank Vogel declared that the guard could play in Saturday's game at Detroit. Gerald Green started in his place and finished with seven points.
