Danny Granger had 30 points and 12 rebounds, and the Indiana Pacers kept their slim Eastern Conference playoff hopes alive with an 85-76 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday. Indiana won its fourth straight, and entered Friday trailing No. 8 Atlanta, but still likely needs to win its final three games to have a chance at the postseason.
Philadelphia dropped into a tie for the No. 6 seed in the conference with Toronto following one of its worst shooting performances of the season. The 76ers shot just 35% from the field and a season-worst 43% from the line (9-for-21). Andre Miller, who scored 23 points, and Thaddeus Young, who added 21, were the only 76ers players in double figures.
