NBA 2018, Philadelphia 76ers vs Indiana Pacers: Double-doubles for Ben Simmons ...


The 76ers also snapped an eight-game losing streak at Bankers Life Fieldhouse that dated to April 2013.


Just three nights after getting blown out at Brooklyn, the 76ers looked right at home in Indianapolis.


The 76ers rebuilt a five-point lead early in the third quarter and Robert Covington scored eight of the Sixers’ final 10 points in the quarter to give Philadelphia a 78-71 lead.


But when Shamet made back-to-back 3s and Dario Saric completed a four-point play 6:59 left, Philadelphia led 96-77 and the Pacers couldn’t get closer than seven until the final seconds.


Joel Embiid scored 20 points and Ben Simmons nearly posted a triple double to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 100-94 win over the Indiana Pacers for their first road win this season.


Simmons had 16 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists as Philadelphia ended a five-game losing streak on the road.
