Sixers battle back from late 20-point deficit to post a 119-110 victory over Pacers without Joel Embiid


That’s what Doc Rivers wanted to see his 76ers finally do this season without Joel Embiid while facing the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night.


The Sixers outscored the Pacers, 31-6, in the final 8 minutes, 16 seconds to take a 119-110 victory at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.


After Myles Turner made a pair of foul shots to stop the Pacers’ scoring drought, Matisse Thybulle answered with a three-point play to put the Sixers up by four.


Seth Curry, Tobias Harris, and Korkmaz all added late foul shots to give the Sixers their nine-point win.


After the win, Rivers walked into the locker room with a box score in his hands, and told the players the “John Chaney matchup zone was amazing.


Embiid landed hard on his back after being fouled by LeBron James during Wednesday’s home victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.
