The 76ers jumped all over the Pacers in the 4th quarter, starting the quarter off with a 19-4 run, and ended up winning 98-91. Spencer Hawes led the way with 18 points, 16 rebounds, 8 assists and 7 blocked shots.
Spencer Hawes finished the game with a near-historic quadruple double. Hawes, who finished the game with 18 points, 16 rebounds, 8 assists and 7 blocked shots. It was the first 18+ point, 16+ rebound, 8+ assist, 7+ block game since Hakeem Olajuwon did it in 1990.
Yes, since 1990.
Had Hawes been able to collect 2 more assists and 3 more blocks, he would have joined a very short list of players to accomplish a points/rebounds/assists/blocks quadruple double. Basketball-reference.com lists only David Robinson and Hakeem Olajuwon performing the feat, although I'm told Nate Thurmond did it as well.
Jrue Holiday chipped in 27 points and 12 assists (to only 3 turnovers) as well, although he struggled a bit in the second half, shooting only 3-12 in the second half after a blistering 20 points (on 9-13) and 6 assists (0 turnovers) in the first half.
Recap up later tonight.
