A season that started off of a major positive has crashed back to Earth for The Philadelphia 76ers.
Another disappointing outing saw the Pacers close the first half with a commanding, twenty point lead at 65-45.
Philadelphia battled but the deficit was too much to overcome as the Pacers turned in a workmanlike 115-97 victory.
Sixers Coach, Brett Brown publically announced that “this team will find its identity by Christmas”… clearly, he didn’t say which Christmas.
The Sixers were led by another double-double supplied by Ben Simmons who accounted for an 18 point 10 rebound game.
Josh Richardson drained the nets for a 20 point contest.
Domantas Sabonis paced the Pacers with a double-double of his own, knocking down 28 points to go with 10 boards.
TJ Warren complimented Sabonis with a 21 point affair.
