Indiana nearly suffered its first home loss on Wednesday but Paul George buried the tying jumper to force overtime and scored seven of his 28 points in the extra period to spark the Pacers to a 122-115 triumph.

The 76ers left Joel Embiid at home to rest and instead got a standout performance from another belated rookie in Dario Saric, who was drafted along with Embiid in 2014, made his NBA debut this season and recorded his first double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds on Wednesday. Saric buried both of his 3-point attempts in the win and is 7-of-9 from beyond the arc in the last five contests.

Indiana’s biggest splash over the summer was swinging a trade that brought in point guard Jeff Teague from Atlanta, and the 28-year-old Indianapolis native put together his best performance for his hometown team on Wednesday. Teague scored 30 points on 10-of-16 shooting and added nine assists and a pair of steals in the win.

Spaniard Sergio Rodriguez, 30, is starting at point guard in his return to the NBA and went 1-of-14 from the field in Monday’s loss. Rodriguez is 1-of-16 from 3-point range in the last three games while backup T.J. McConnell is 0-of-8 from beyond the arc on the season while shooting 41.4 percent from the field.

The 76ers are losers of 44 straight games in the months of October and November.
