Monday with a 107-93 loss to the Eastern Conference-leading Indiana Pacers at
the Wachovia Center.
Kenny Thomas paced the 76ers with 26 points and 11 rebounds. Zendon Hamilton
had 21 points off the bench and Eric Snow had 16 for Philadelphia, which
closed out its home schedule with a 21-20 mark.
Aaron McKie netted 13 points as the Sixers dropped its third in a row. Philly

game out of reach by scoring 15 of the next 19 points for a 99-89 lead. O’Neal
capped the surge with a layup.
Philadelphia never recovered and suffered the 14-point loss.
