The Indiana Pacers got an important 121-127 win over the Philadelphia 76ers thanks to TJ Warren’s incredible performance.

The Pacers forward finished the game with a career-high 53 points shooting 20-29 from the field. He also made 9 out-of-his 12 three-pointers including two clutch threes in the last 2 minutes.

After Warren became the first player to record 50+ points in the bubble, Indiana improved to 40-26. The former Suns’ forward, who was dubbed for cash consideration by Phoenix last summer, started with 29 points in the first half.

On the other side, the Sixers dropped to 39-27, despite the fact that Joel Embiid finished the contest with a monstrous double-double scoring 41 points along with 21 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks.
