‪2021-22 NBA Regular Season

Tip-off at 02:00 
The Indiana Pacers and the Philadelphia 76ers will renew their rivalry with an NBA Regular Season clash at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana on the morning of Sunday 14 November 2021. Tip-off is at 02:00.
The Pacers have struggled for consistency since the start of the campaign, with coach Rick Carlisle frustrated that his team has been unable to find a fully fledged identity. Indiana has the talent to challenge the best, but only if they stick to a plan.

“I really like our team. I think we have a lot of talent on this team, but we don't have the kind of talent to win on talent alone," Carlisle explained. "I mean, we've got to really be tied together. And our compete level has got to be way up there.”
The 76ers, meanwhile, have looked one of the best teams on show thus far in the Regular Season and will head to Indiana full of confidence that another win is theirs for the taking.
"This group is really close, they don't have any distractions, and they play hard," Sixers coach Doc Rivers said, while Georges Niang hailed the team spirit after an impressive performance to beat the Detroit Pistons away from home this past weekend.

"We have gritty guys who are just here to win basketball games," Niang said. "We came in here on the second half of a back-to-back after a tough win against Chicago plus everything this morning and got a win. This is a big team effort."
In head-to-head stats, the Pacers and the 76ers have met in 186 Regular Season games since ‪1976-77, with Philadelphia claiming 103 wins compared to 83 for Indiana. The teams’ last Regular Season meeting was in May 2021, with the Pacers winning 103-94 at home thanks to 24 points from Caris LeVert.
