Granger, Pacers share ball, get best of sluggish Bulls

INDIANAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Danny Granger scored big. Real big.

But to Granger and the Indiana Pacers Saturday, a surprisingly comfortable 100-90 victory over the Chicago Bulls in front of a sold-out crowd of 18,165 at Conseco Fieldhouse was less about one player shooting well and a lot more about something else: Sharing the ball, and moving without it.

And for a change for the Pacers, it was about winning.

"We've been trying to put our focus on moving the ball," Granger said after the struggling, oft-injured Pacers won for the second time in their last nine games. "We did it tonight."

With Granger scoring 30 points on 10 of 21 shooting, and with Indiana finishing with 23 assists, the Pacers (20-39) never trailed after the first quarter against a Bulls team (31-28) that had won six of eight games, including a 115-111 home victory over Portland Friday.

"This is one of those bumps in the road," Bulls guard Taj Gibson said. "In this league, you have different games every night and we just have to get back on track."

Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said on his radio show Thursday he expected the Pacers having the day off after a back-to-back while the Bulls played Friday to give the Pacers edge. And while he said Saturday that it wasn't a significant factor, Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said, "the guys were dead."

"We can't use that as an excuse," said Del Negro, whose team had eight fast-break points to 14 for the Pacers. "You have to come out and play."

The victory was just the seventh this season for Indiana against a team with a record of .500 or better.

It also came in the middle of perhaps the Pacers' toughest stretch of a difficult season.

The Pacers, who have had seven losing streaks of three of more this season, recently lost three games on a four-game road trip, then lost to Milwaukee 112-110 upon returning home Thursday. They open a four-game West Coast trip against defending the NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.

"It's important for us to go out and play hard every night with more consistency," said Pacers center Roy Hibbert, who finished with 12 points and seven rebounds. "It was fun tonight, going out and playing hard. We've got to start playing like we did tonight, coming out with momentum and playing consistently. That means we have to stay focused."

But Saturday's story wasn't about the past or future, but savoring a game in which O'Brien said they continued to improve passing and moving without the ball. It's an area O'Brien said he expects to improve as a lineup that has changed often because of injuries develops consistency, chemistry and cohesion. On Saturday, the Pacers got the ball deeper toward the basket than they typically have this season.

"We're getting better at that," O'Brien said. "As the year goes on, you'll see us getting better and better. We're making aggressive scoring cuts."

After eight first-half turnovers, Indiana had one in the second and two in the third, turning a one-point first-quarter lead into an 80-68 advantage entering the fourth quarter.

"It definitely felt good out there tonight," Pacers forward/guard Dahntay Jones said. "We moved the ball well, using our small lineup and our reduction in number of turnovers. We have to be more consistent like this on a daily basis.

"We have a tough schedule ahead of us the next couple of weeks. We can do some good things."

The victory came a day after O'Brien said on his radio show there was a chance rookie forward Tyler Hansbrough, the team's first-round selection in the 2009 NBA Draft, could miss the rest of the regular season with an inner ear infection.

But if Hansbrough's situation in a sense has defined a difficult season, on Saturday the Pacers looked fresh and sharp throughout. After falling behind by five early in the first quarter, they led 25-24 after the first quarter and did not trail after that. They pushed ahead by nine in the second quarter and never allowed Chicago a serious run.

The Pacers led by 12 late in the third quarter and 16 midway through the fourth, and with the Bulls committing six of their 21 turnovers in the fourth quarter, Chicago could cut the lead below double digits just once in the fourth quarter.

"We had too many turnovers," Del Negro said. "There wasn't enough efficiency offensively."

Said Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich, "We just didn't do a good job of guarding them. They were cutting, back-cutting us, and we weren't making any second-effort plays. We got beat tonight because of it."
