Paul George scored 27 points before he was ejected after a scuffle with 76ers guard Gerald Henderson and the Pacers inched closer to a playoff berth with a 120-111 victory in Philadelphia on Monday night.

The Pacers (41-40) would have wrapped up a spot Monday if Chicago or Miami lost, but both won to improve to 40-41. “I didn’t look at the scoreboard once,” Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. “My focus is on us and what we need to do. We did that with two solid games on the road against Orlando and Philly and we’ve got one more at home we need to get.”
