Pacers Lose to 76ers After Nasty Second Half

At one point Indiana had a 14 point lead. That disappeared quickly.

INDIANAPOLIS--The Indiana Pacers have lost four out of their last six games and Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia 76ers was a disappointment to fans, the team and a frustrated Head Coach Nate McMillan.

"I thought second half we just didn’t execute offensively. Only four assists in that second half, we didn’t have the ball movement and missed a ton of free throws. First half was a good half for us and the second half was a reverse of that," said McMillan.

The Pacers are now 42-25 for the season.

"We got to stay together," said McMillan, in the post-game press conference. "We got to keep working and put together a 48-minute game. Tonight, I thought we got off to a good start. Second half, we just weren’t able to score, didn’t get the ball movement, execution."

Philadelphia's victory against the Pacers marks the first time the 76ers have had three regular season wins against the Pacers since the 2004-05 season, said Pacers.com.

The Pacers play the New York Knicks Tuesday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
