  • Indiana Pacers vs Philadelphia 76ers: Lineups, preview & prediction 3/13/18

IN next hosts Eastern Conference-leading Toronto before returning to the road for another matchup with a playoff-bound team on Saturday at Washington.

The win allowed the Blue & Gold to remain in the third place in the Eastern Conference standings. The Pacers won the most recent matchup 100-92, covering as 2-point favorites.

The Pacers led throughout the second half, but they had a hard time separating themselves from Philadelphia.

Oladipo, who was averaging 23.8 points coming into the night, finished with 11 points on 4-for-21 shooting, including 1 for 4 from 3-point range.

The Sixers cut the Pacers lead down to five after Redick hit a three and a Marco Belinelli completed a three-point play. The Blue & Gold took a 57-53 advantage into the break.

IN is 24-2 when they hold opponents under 100 points, while Philadelphia is 16-0. McMillan said after the game that X-rays were negative but Sabonis called the ankle "a pretty bad sprain".

IN grabbed the lead midway through the first quarter and never trailed again.

"I thought we did a good job of executing", IN coach Nate MacMillan said after the game. After pulling off a good crossover move and scoring on an easy drive to the basket, Stephenson was pushed by the All-Star center, forcing him to back-pedal to regain his balance.

Trevor Booker converted a layup and Oladipo drained a 3-pointer, and IN extended its advantage to 97-89 with 3:18 remaining.

Philly made one last run in the final two minutes, using a J.J. Redick 3-pointer and Embiid layup to make it a 99-96 game with 46 seconds to play.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers are steadily gaining momentum towards the playoffs as they've won four of their last six games and they will be looking to build on Sunday's 120-97 win at Brooklyn.

Turner corralled the rebound and knocked down both free throws with 21.5 seconds remaining to seemingly seal the game.

In the second game, though, he was ineffective due to foul trouble and missed all five of his shots while playing 15 minutes.

Oladipo won the tip to Bogdanovic on the baseline, who threw the ball off of Simmons to put the finishing touches on the victory. He has been steady against the Pacers this season, totaling 31 points and 11 rebounds while shooting 50 percent and has averaged 12.3 points and 7.3 rebounds in six career matchups. Victor Oladipo and Lance Stephenson scored 11 points each and Darren Collison had 10.

Joel Embiid is the top fantasy basketball player for the 76ers with a season average of 44.68 fantasy points per game. Ben Simmons had a triple double - 10 points, 13 rebounds and a 10 assists.

After picking up impressive wins over Boston and Philadelphia, the Pacers return home to take on the East-leading Toronto Raptors on Thursday.

With less than a minute to go J.J. Redick hit a quick three following two free throws from Thaddeus Young to shrink the IN lead to five points.

Young recorded his sixth double-double of the season and his first since February 11.
