[PHILADELPHIA] — The Philadelphia 76ers played host to the Indiana Pacers last night but couldn't manage to leave much of an impact, failing to keep up with their visiting rivals and eventually succumbing in a 111-120 defeat. The loss bumps Philadelphia's record down to 28-53 on the season, while the victory gives Indiana a 41-40 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the 76ers would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

On this night it was Myles Turner leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 18 points, 13 rebounds, 1 assists, 4 blocks and 2 steals in 28 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Most importantly, the Pacers managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Turner keeps producing at this rate and Indiana keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though Philadelphia didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, Paul George did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 27 points, 2 rebounds and 5 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the 76ers can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though Philadelphia wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the New York Knicks. The Pacers, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Atlanta Hawks.
