Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The heavy-legged Indiana Pacers, led by Roy Hibbert's 16 points and 13 rebounds, displayed their defensive prowess in downing the Philadelphia 76ers, 88-69, for their third win in as many days.

Playing the final test in the NBA's only back-to-back-to-back this season, the Pacers held Philadelphia to 36 percent shooting in rolling to their fifth consecutive victory, including a rescheduled Central-Division clash with the Bulls on Monday and a double-digit win over the Hawks on Tuesday.

George Hill, Paul George and David West all chipped in 15 points for the victors.

The already-ailing Sixers fell to 4-2 on their eight-game homestand and received more dire news Wednesday as it is being reported starting guard Jason Richardson will need to undergo season-ending surgery on his knee. On Monday, the club's second-leading scorer and top rebounder, Thaddeus Young, suffered a grade one left hamstring strain and will miss the next three weeks.

Rookie Arnett Moultrie saw more playing time as a result and netted 12 points to follow up Jrue Holiday's team-high 17-point effort in the club's lowest scoring outing of season.
