Victory in extremis 93-92 vs the Pacers!

The 76ers went on for a second Win in a row last night ( 93-92 ) facing the Indiana Pacers. Once again, they earned this win in the very last seconds of the game, on a play from MCW who had a full stat sheet ( 15 pts, 5 rbs and 9 ast ).

After the two teams observed each other in the 1st quarter ( 21-19 for Indiana ), the Pacers will take a slight lead with a good David West ( 28 pts, 9 rbs, 2 ast ). Tony Wroten ( 20 pts, 4 rbs, 9 ast, 2 stl ) and Robert Covington ( 16 pts, 2 rbs ) lead the Sixers and allow the team to keep up with their opponent. At halftime, Sixers are only down 6 ( 49-43 ).

Everything will play itself out in the second half with several key moments. Philadelphia returns to head in the 3rd quarter that they prevail 29-21. They started with a 12-3 before the Pacers take the lead back at 62-60. Three 3 pointers in a row allow Philly to flip the script around and lead 69-62 before Indiana goes for a 8-0 run while the quarter is about to end. But a « and 1″ play from Tony Wroten puts his team up 2 to enter the 4th quarter ( 72-70 ). The Sixers will go up to a 7pt lead with 7’28 » left in the game ( 84-77 ) but the Pacers close out the gap again and even go ahead. With 1’29 » left, Wroten scores a lay-up ( 89-88 for the Sixers ) before a play from Roy Hibbert puts the Pacers ahead one more time ( 90-89 ).

Crazy ending when Covington scores 2 points with 32.9 seconds in the game to put the Sixers up by 1 and the answer from David West with 17.9 seconds put the Pacers ahead once again ( 91-92 ). 9.9 seconds on the scoreboard, MCW makes a lay-up to seal the deal with the 76ers up 1 ( 93-92 ) followed by a missed shot at the buzzer from David West. A flashback from last night’s game in Brooklyn with the explosion of joy of a team that had a very tough start of season. The renewal seems to be on ! And this second home win put a smile back on the whole team’s face as well as the fans!
