Recap: Philadelphia vs. Indiana

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Spencer Hawes had a career night, registering 18 points, 16 rebounds, eight assists and seven blocks, as the 76ers defeated the Indiana Pacers, 98-91, on Saturday.

Hawes was one of six Philadelphia players to score double-digits. Jrue Holiday had 27 points and 12 assists for the Sixers, who came into the game off a 98-94 loss against Miami on Wednesday. Thaddeus Young and Dorell Wright scored 13 points apiece and Damien Wilkins added 12. Evan Turner tallied 11 points.

"Spencer, wow, he has been terrific," said 76ers coach Doug Collins. "Spencer is an incredibly gifted basketball player."

Roy Hibbert had 25 points and 10 rebounds for the Pacers, who have lost three of their last four games. Paul George nearly recorded a triple-double with 18 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists. David West also scored 18 points in the setback.

Indiana had a 72-71 edge entering the fourth quarter, but Lavoy Allen made a tip shot 15 seconds in to give Philadelphia a 73-72 lead, and the 76ers would hold on to it for the rest of the contest. Wright followed that with a triple to put them up 76-72.

A pair of free throws by George with 11:06 left in regulation cut the deficit to 76-74, but that was close as the Pacers would get. The 76ers went on a 14-2 run to extend their lead to 90-76 with 5:46 remaining.

George scored 13 points in the period, but the rest of the team scored just six, and the Pacers shot 27.3 percent from the field.

It was a close contest throughout the entire game up until the fourth.

The Pacers held their largest lead early in the second quarter, 31-23, however it quickly evaporated, as a 7-0 spurt by the 76ers in 2 1/2 minutes cut the deficit to 31-30.

The Pacers led 49-48 at halftime.
