Granger scores 31, leads Pacers to win over Wizards

INDIANAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- It's certainly too late for the post-season this season, but make no mistake: The Indiana Pacers are hot. Legitimately hot.

And so is Danny Granger.

Granger, after times of inconsistency early in the season, scored more than 30 points in a third consecutive game Wednesday and the Pacers continued their late-season surge in a 99-82 victory over the Washington Wizards in front of 12,504 at Conseco Fieldhouse.

"Three straight wins, too -- that's the best part about it," Granger said after a 31-point performance in which he shot 12 of 20 from the floor -- 4 of 5 from 3-point range.

Granger's math was off by a touch, but in a good way for the Pacers.

One of the NBA's most inconsistent, frustrating teams for 65 games this season, the Pacers have taken advantage of a stretch of home games and sub-.500 opponents to win four consecutive games, and five of their last six. The only loss during that span came a week ago at Cleveland.

The Pacers, who have won six consecutive home games, have beaten Detroit twice since, and also beat playoff-contending Oklahoma City this past Sunday afternoon. Wednesday night's victory came after the Pacers broke open a tight game in the second half against the Wizards, who as the season approaches its end are the opposite Indiana.

The loss Wednesday was the franchise record-tying 13th in succession for Washington (21-49), and coach Flip Saunders said the reason is simple.

Right now, the Wizards aren't good enough to be winning.

"We are just looking to be competitive," Saunders said. "The reason we are getting beat right now is because teams are just better than us. We haven't had the overall consistency and we just aren't talented."

The Pacers (26-46) on Wednesday won despite an injury to swingman Mike Dunleavy, who left with a sprained ankle. Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said he could have returned.

They also won despite the absence of center Roy Hibbert, who missed after sustaining a jaw injury in Detroit Tuesday. Reserve Josh McRoberts started in his place, scoring 14 points, including six quickly in the first quarter.

"He got us off to a very good start," O'Brien said

"Josh McRoberts definitely surprised us tonight," Wizards forward Andray Blatche (21 points, six rebounds) said. "He came out real aggressive on the boards, got a lot of offensive rebounds and putbacks and he was getting out on the break and just doing a good job hustling."

McRoberts, who said he learned he would start around 4:30 Wednesday, played 30:04, and finished with 12 rebounds. O'Brien said he and forward Troy Murphy (12 points, 19 rebounds) in the absence of Hibbert helped limit the Wizards' offensive rebounding in the second half. The Wizards had 12 offensive rebounds in the first half and four in the second.

"I was able to get my second wind in the second quarter and this helped me finish the game out," McRoberts said.

That was about the time the Pacers were pulling away.

The Wizards stayed close throughout the first quarter and a half, but after Blatche gave Washington a 42-41 lead with a turnaround jump shot with 2:20 remaining in the second quarter, Brandon Rush's 19-foot jumper gave Indiana a lead it never relinquished.

The Pacers scored the final eight points of the half, part of a 14-0 run that gave Indiana a 55-42 lead with just under 10 minutes remaining in the third quarter. The lead reached 20 when Granger converted a 3-point field goal with 3:06 remaining in the quarter and Washington never got closer than 10 thereafter.

"Basketball is a game of runs," Blatche said. "We had our runs and they had theirs. They just had more than we did. They made some adjustments at halftime. We came into the half only down seven points, but we came out in the third quarter a little shaky and had a couple of quick turnovers. That kind of got them going."

Once they got going, O'Brien said Granger wouldn't let them stop. While the Pacers, playing on the second night of a back-to-back, shot just 6 of 28 from 3-point range, Granger shooting 80 percent on five 3-pointers gave Indiana enough offense to maintain second-half momentum.

"I think he's playing with a lot of energy," O'Brien said. "He's aware that these aren't unimportant games in terms of helping the franchise. What he's given us the last 10, 11 games is the Danny we know."
