The Indiana Pacers bounced back with a win against the Philadelphia 76ers by a final score of 107-94 and find themselves tied for 5th in the Eastern Conference playoff standings.
Myles Turner tied his career high in rebounds with 16 and added a very efficient 17 points while making seven of his nine shots. This after scoring 20 points on his birthday in his previous game. Hopefully this is a sign of his slump coming to an end.
“You played like a man tonight,” Teague told Turner during his post-game interview, “that because you’re 21?”
Turner told Jeremiah Johnson that because his offensive game has been in a bit of a slump that he came in wanting to do all the small things, rebound everything and block every shot.
Paul George led the team in scoring with 21 points as he continued his great offensive play in the month of March.
Al Jefferson went down with a painful injury in the second half. Early prognosis is a sprained ankle, but Jefferson went off the court in a wheelchair and will likely be out for awhile.
Due to tiebreakers, the Pacers remain in 7th-place.
