Warren leads Pacers past 76ers 101-95
Tuesday, January 14, 2020

(INDIANAPOLIS) – When the Indiana Pacers were struggling offensively Monday, T.J. Warren bailed them out. He also did it defensively. Warren scored 21 points and blocked a potential go-ahead 3-pointer with 29 seconds left, as the Pacers scored the final seven points for a 101-95 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. Indiana has now beaten the 76ers twice in 14 days and holds the No. 5 spot in the Eastern Conference standings, a half-game ahead of Philadelphia. And yet in a game when Malcolm Brogdon finished with 21 points, seven rebounds and nine assists, and Myles Turner had 14 points and 10 rebounds while Domantas Sabonis had 10 points and 16 rebounds, it was Warren's energy, ability to get to the rim and a critical defensive play that proved the difference. Ben Simmons had 24 points and 14 rebounds for Philadelphia, who fell to 1-2 since losing Joel Embiid to an injured finger on his left hand.
