Two NBA teams played at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Thursday night, with a combined losing streak of 12 games in a row. Coming into the game, the New Jersey Nets had lost seven in a row, while the Indiana Pacers had lost five straight.

At one point in the first quarter, the Nets led the Pacers 29-18. Thursday’s match-up marked the third straight game where the Pacers let themselves trail by double digits that early in the game. New Jersey shot 72 percent in the game’s opening quarter, and were led in scoring by All-Star guard Deron Williams. Williams scored 29 points, 17 of which were put up in the game’s first half.

Danny Granger returned for the Pacers, after missing the majority of the previous two games with a left ankle sprain. Granger took control of his team, with a game-high 32 points. Danny hit four shots from long distance, and was eight of nine from the free throw line. The Pacers outlasted the Nets, and sent New Jersey back to the shore, with an eighth straight loss.

Roy Hibbert, Indiana’s only player voted to the 2012 NBA All-Star team, put up his 12th double-double of the season in the win over New Jersey. Paul George, who will represent Indiana during All-Star weekend in the BBVC Rising Stars Challenge and the NBA 2012 Slam Dunk Contest, had 11 points, five rebounds, five assists, four steals, and two blocks.
