Recap: Philadelphia vs. Indiana

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Paul George had 25 points and six assists and the Indiana Pacers handed the Philadelphia 76ers their 19th straight loss following a 101-94 triumph on Friday night.

David West supplied 18 points, seven rebounds and four blocks, George Hill tallied 14 points, nine assists and six boards and Lance Stephenson added 13 points and 12 boards for Indiana, which has won two straight on the heels of a four-game skid.

Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen made their returns to Philadelphia since being sent to Indiana right before the trade deadline. Turner finished with just two points on 1-of-4 shooting, while Allen hit all six of his shots and scored 13 points.

Thaddeus Young registered 25 points, 10 assists and six rebounds for the Sixers, who have not won since beating the Boston Celtics on Jan. 29.

The Sixers trailed by as many as 17 in the first half but two Young free throws capped a 9-0 spurt to get them within 87-84 with 4:58 remaining.

Indiana, though, netted six straight points as back-to-back West jumpers staked it to a 93-84 spread. A Young jumper less than a minute later cut the deficit to 93-90, but George drove in for a layup before knocking down a 3- pointer to make it 98-90 with 1:36 left.

Earlier, the Pacers raced out to a 9-0 start and never looked back.

Indiana led 27-20 after a quarter of play, 52-45 at the break and 78-66 going into the final frame.
