NBA: Indiana 88, Philadelphia 69

Feb. 6, 2013 at 9:50 PM

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Roy Hibbert was one of four Indiana players to reach at least 15 points Wednesday while dominating the second half in an 88-69 victory over Philadelphia.

It was the third game in as many days for the Pacers and they won them all. Indiana is the only team in the NBA this season forced to play on three consecutive days.

Hibbert scored 18 points and grabbed 19 rebounds while George Hill, Paul George and David West all had 15 points. Indiana led by three at halftime and then held the 76ers to 35 points over the final two quarters.

It was Indiana's fifth straight win overall. The Pacers wound up having to play three straight days because a game against Chicago postponed by weather earlier this season was moved to last Monday.

Philadelphia slipped to 4-2 on an eight-game homestand and learned Wednesday that guard Jason Richardson would undergo season-ending knee surgery. Thaddeus Young will also be out for three weeks with a hamstring strain.

Jrue Holiday led Philadelphia with 17 points. It was the 76ers' smallest point production of the season.
