INDIANAPOLIS -- The Sixers finished off their disappointing regular season with a 105-95 win over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night. The Sixers finished the season with a 34-48 record.
The Pacers rested a number of key players in the game as the Eastern Conference’s No. 3 seed gets ready for the playoffs.
Jrue Holiday, as much as he is coveting some offseason rest, said prior to tipoff that the Sixers really wanted to come out strong and finish the season on the right note.
The Sixers backed up that talk early, grabbing a nine-point lead in the first quarter. They increased that advantage to 22 points at halftime.
Follow the leader
The Sixers were led by Dorell Wright, who had 23 points and five assists. Evan Turner added 16 points, six rebounds and five assists.
Lavoy Allen added 11 points and 11 rebounds for his third career double-double.
Indiana’s Gerald Green led all scorers with 34 points. He shot 14 of 23, including 6 for 11 from behind the arc.
Since losing 99-91 to the Orlando Magic on March 10, the Sixers won 11 of their final 20 games. That was their best stretch of winning basketball since they started the season 11-9.
Take a bow
Arnett Moultrie had 14 points to go along with a career-high 12 rebounds for his first career double-double.
Moultrie, who appeared in 47 games this season, shot 58 percent from the floor for the year.
Moultrie’s summer regiment will go a long way in him having a more prominent role with the team next year.
Sixers players will convene for one final time this season on Thursday morning at their practice facility to conduct individual exit interviews with Sixers owner Josh Harris, head coach Doug Collins and team president Rod Thorn.
It would appear Thursday will also be Collins’ final day conducting head coaching duties for the organization.
The next steps for the Sixers to decide will be who is Collins’ successor, if they want to give general manager Tony DiLeo a new contract and what is the best way to move forward on the heels of the Andrew Bynum debacle.
