INDIANAPOLIS — The Pacers hit their free throws when it mattered most to secure a 101-95 win over Philadelphia Monday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The game was tied heading into the final quarter and with just over two minutes to go, the 76ers took a 95-94 lead. Those were their last points of the game.

Over the last two minutes, Indiana scored seven points—all on free throws.

It was the second Pacer win against Philly at home in two weeks and it moves the Pacers just ahead of the 76ers in the Eastern Conference standings.

Malcolm Brogdon was back in the Indiana lineup following an injury. He and T.J Warren both had 21 points to lead the team in scoring. Domantas Sabonis had 16 rebounds.

Ben Simmons led 25-16 Philadelphia with 24 points. The 76ers have dropped six of their last eight games.

The Pacers are now 25-15 and will travel to Minnesota for a Wednesday game with the Timberwolves.
