The Philadelphia 76ers will play the Indiana Pacers at Wells Fargo Center (Philadelphia) on Monday, October 24 at 7:00 PM ET.
Is James Harden playing tonight?
The Indiana Pacers are on the road after a three-game homestand that ended with a 124-115 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday at Gainbridge Arena.
The Pacers (1-2) will open a five-game road trip against the 76ers (0-3) on Monday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia 76ers were defeated 114-10 by the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday, capping off a disappointing first week of play that saw them lose to the Boston Celtics 126-117 and the Milwaukee Bucks 90-88.
Despite the fact that it is early in the season, the Spurs (2-1), who defeated the Pacers by a score of 137-134 on Friday, are their usual opponent.
Bennedict Mathurin scored a game-high 27 points and made history in the Pacers’ most recent game.
His 72 points in his first three games set a Pacers rookie record and are the most by a rookie in the NBA since 1995.
Mathurin is also the first Pacers rookie since Reggie Miller to score 20 or more points in consecutive games.
The Pacers bench was led by Mathurin and Goga Bitazde, who combined for 14 points and a career-high 15 rebounds in the game against the Pistons.
Both starters Tyrese Haliburton and Jalen Smith had double-doubles. The 76ers’ most recent loss saw Joel Embiid score 40 points, while James Harden nearly had a triple-double with 12 points, 12 assists, and 9 rebounds.
Tyrese Maxey, a guard, also had a good night, scoring 25 points, while the 76ers bench only contributed 10 points.
