+Read full article

Playing a second game in Texas in two nights, the Indiana Pacers faced the Houston Rockets on Sunday, in a game that turned out to be quite the barn-burner. The hottest player in the barn last night was obviously Danny Granger, whose hot shooting helped the Pacers attain an overtime

Granger led all scorers with 32 points, hitting 11 shots from the floor, and scoring on 6-8 shots from long range. It took an extra quarter to finalize, but Granger’s best night of the season so far capped a tough back-and-forth victory in Houston. The game was tied 13 times over the five quarters, resulting in a last-second win by Indiana, by a score of 104-102. Indiana was outscored by 12 points in the third quarter, but came back to outscore Houston by ten in the fourth. Houston held on late, forcing overtime. The Pacers out-rebounded the Rockets 9-0 to begin overtime. Both teams had five players score in double figures.

The win in Houston marked Indiana’s ninth game in thirteen days. The Pacers are in the midst of playing four sets of back-to-back games in a row. Indiana lost in New Jersey against the New Jersey Nets, before defeating the Washington Wizards at home the next night. Before beating the Rockets on Sunday, the Pacers lost a road game against the San Antonio Spurs Saturday night. Indiana returns to action at home against the Jeremy Lin-less New York Knicks on Tuesday night, before traveling to Washington on Wednesday to face the Wizards once again.
