Danny Granger scored 24 points, and Roy Hibbert had 15 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Indiana Pacers to their sixth straight win, 102-97 over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.
The Pacers won their fifth straight road game and 10th of 11 overall and seem to be hitting their stride as the postseason nears. The Pacers play their final four games on the road and, barring a complete collapse, should earn the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Andre Iguodala scored 23 points for the Sixers in their third straight loss as they continue their late-season fade. They lead idle Milwaukee by only 1 1/2 games for the eighth and final spot in the East. The Sixers play their final five games on the road, including April 25 at Milwaukee.

There were only 5 games in the NBA last night which means it’s almost like a day off for me today. Next year it’s going to be sooo much easier when there’s not 11-13 games a night 4 times a week. That’s a lot of blurbing to do, son! Since last night was a bit slow I want to take the opportunity to thank those of you who have donated to hecmanhoops to help keep this blog going...
