Andre Iguodala had 26 points for Philadelphia (12-15) in its first loss in four games under new coach Tony DiLeo. Andre Miller had a triple-double for the Sixers with 14 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds.
Miller's two free throws with 2:59 left gave Philadelphia an 88-83 lead. But the Pacers scored eight of the next nine points, on Ford's free throws and Jeff Foster's three-point play, to take a 91-89 lead with 1:30 left.
After Philadelphia's Samuel Dalembert made one of two free throws, Jarrett Jack made a driving shot in the lane to give Indiana a 93-30 lead with 49 seconds left. Iguodala's layup with 41.1 seconds remaining pulled Philadelphia to 93-92 with 41.1 seconds left and the Sixers went ahead 94-93 on Lou Williams' fast-break dunk after Jack's turnover on Indiana's previous possession.
Ford's jump shot gave Indiana back the lead and Iguodala missed a driving, left-handed shot as time expired that would've given Philadelphia the victory.
Jack finished with 12 points and a season-high eight assists for Indiana, which got a season-high 12 points all in the first half from Travis Diener, 11 from Brandon Rush and a season-high 10 from Josh McRoberts.
Williams had 17 points, and Dalembert finished with 11 points and 14 rebounds for the Sixers.
Notes: Sixers guard Willie Green sprained his left ankle while guarding Jack in the first half. X-rays were negative, but Green didn't return. ... Miller's triple-double was the eighth of his career. ... The Sixers will begin a string of six straight road games Tuesday night at Boston.
