Warren s big night, late block help Pacers rally past 76ers

By Michael Marot, Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — T.J. Warren scored 21 points and blocked a late 3-pointer that would have given Philadelphia the lead to help the Indiana Pacers hold on for a 101-95 victory over the 76ers on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). The Pacers have now beaten the 76ers twice in 14 days, this time after charging back from an 11-point deficit midway through the third quarter. Malcolm Brogdon also had 21 points and added seven rebounds and nine assists. Ben Simmons had 24 points and 14 rebounds for the 76ers. Josh Richardson added 23 points, 17 in the fourth quarter as Philadelphia fell to 1-2 since losing Joel Embiid with an injured finger on his left hand. It was a vastly different game from Indiana's 115-97 rout in December. For most of the night, everyone but Simmons — who made 9 of 11 shots in the first half — struggled offensively. When Philadelphia extended the lead to 63-52 midway through the third quarter, the Pacers finally responded. Myles Turner scored seven points in a 15-4 spurt that tied the score at 67 with 1:26 left in the third. The 76ers looked like they might hang on thanks to Richardson's fourth-quarter flurry. But after he made two free throws to give Philadelphia a 92-89 lead with 3:36 to go, the 76ers managed just one more basket — a 3 from Richardson that gave Philadelphia a 95-94 lead with 2:02 left. Turner followed with the go-ahead free throws with 1:14 to play, Warren preserved the lead with the critical block and the Pacers closed it out at the free throw line. TIP-INS 76ers: Simmons recorded his 21st double-double of the season. ... Tobias Harris had 15 points and 10 rebounds, his sixth double-double. ... Al Horford finished with 10 points and eight rebounds. ... Philadelphia fell to 1-2 in the season series. ... Richardson is 21 of 23 on free throws in his last four games. ... The 76ers had a 50-32 scoring advantage in the paint. Pacers: Turner had 14 points and 10 rebounds while Justin Holiday added 14 points. ... Warren had his fourth 20-point game of the season. ... Brogdon returned after missing eight of the previous nine games with a sore lower back and strep throat. ... Domantas Sabonis returned after missing one game with a sore left knee. Sabonis had 10 points and 16 rebounds. ... Brogdon and Sabonis were a combined 7 of 27 from the field. BIG DIFFERENCE There's no question the 76ers are a different team without Embiid. So coach Brett Brown is willing to take the challenge head on. Last week, he tried All-Star point guard Simmons in the post. On Monday (Tuesday, PHL time), he canceled the pregame shootaround so they could contemplate more thoroughly what they needed to do to beat the Pacers on the road. “We're still figuring some stuff out, like what's life like without Joel," Brown said. “We miss him terribly but when we do absorb him back into the mix, I hope we have some momentum built up." UP NEXT 76ers: Host Brooklyn on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) in the first of two straight home games. Pacers: Make their annual trip to Minnesota on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time)......»»

Ball leads Pelicans past Pistons in overtime, 117-100

By Dave Hogg, Associated Press DETROIT (AP) — Lonzo Ball scored five of his 17 points in overtime and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Detroit Pistons 117-110 on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) in a matchup of injury-depleted teams. The Pistons are still missing starters Blake Griffin (knee), Luke Kennard (knee) and Reggie Jackson (back), while the Pelicans played without their top three scorers — Brandon Ingram (knee), Jrue Holiday (elbow) and JJ Redick (hamstring) — along with Derrick Favors (hamstring) and Zion Williamson (knee). Detroit, which trailed by 16 with 11 minutes to play, tied the game at 100 on Derrick Rose's bank shot with 30 seconds left. E'Twaun Moore missed two short jumpers, giving Detroit the ball with 14 seconds remaining, but Rose missed at the buzzer. The Pelicans opened overtime with a 9-2 run, including five points from Ball, and Rose had two turnovers in the last 90 seconds. New Orleans has won three of four and is now 9-4 after a 6-22 start. Jahlil Okafor had 25 points and 14 rebounds while Nicolo Melli scored 20 points and Moore had 16. The Pistons lost their third straight and their 12th in the last 15 games. Rose had 23 points and eight assists, while Christian Wood added 18 points and nine rebounds. Rookie Sekou Doumbouya scored 16 points. Okafor had 19 points and eight rebounds as the Pelicans took a 63-52 halftime lead. Detroit narrowed the gap to seven at the start of the third, but Melli answered with a 3-pointer. The Pelicans kept the gap in double figures for the rest of the quarter, going into the fourth with an 89-77 lead. Doumbouya's transition dunk cut it to 97-91 with 6:05 left, and Rose followed with a layup in traffic. Josh Hart and Wood traded 3-pointers, and another layup by Rose pulled the Pistons within 100-98. TIP-INS Pelicans: With the Pelicans short-handed, rookie Zylon Cheatham entered the rotation as part of coach Alvin Gentry's second unit. He played 11 minutes, scoring two points in his third NBA game. Pistons: Guard Jordan Bone, who came into the game with six NBA minutes over three games, was inserted into the game in the first quarter as part of a three-guard second unit. Bone finished with no points in eight first-half minutes. UP NEXT Pelicans: Host the Utah Jazz on Thursday (Friday, PHL time). Pistons: Visit the Boston Celtics on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time)......»»
