Granger drops career-high 44 as Pacers win fifth straight

INDIANAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Indiana Pacers look better by the game.

And if Danny Granger is far from the only reason, he's the most obvious -- and he was a big reason they not only looked good Friday, but beat one of the NBA's best teams doing it.

Granger, a swingman and the team's hottest player in recent weeks, gave the surprisingly surging Pacers another big-time scoring performance Friday with a career-high 44 points in a 122-106 come-from-behind victory over the Utah Jazz in front of 15,463 at Conseco Fieldhouse.

"It was definitely one of the best wins of the season," Granger said following his fourth consecutive game with 30 or more points -- all Indiana victories. "It's a process. Not only players, but teams, can get into a rhythm. We got our rhythm a little late."

But make no mistake, the Pacers (27-46) are currently in rhythm. The victory over Utah (47-26) tied their season-high winning streak at five, and their current stretch of six victories in seven games includes victories over three teams in postseason contention: Charlotte (37-34), Oklahoma City (43-27) and the Jazz.

The Jazz entered Friday having won three consecutive games and five of six.

"They play hard and they're a talented group," Jazz forward Carlos Boozer said of the Pacers. "They play together. Their future might look really bright."

On Friday, the present didn't look real bright for the Pacers. Not until late in the third quarter.

That's because for 2 quarters, the Jazz played solidly and consistently, inching to a one-point lead after the first quarter and extending it to seven at halftime with 14 second-quarter points from Mehmet Okur (27 points). At that point, Boozer (22 points) had 11, and while Granger had 18 points, there was little sign of a Pacers dominant second half.

But that's exactly what happened.

The Jazz led 80-68 seven minutes into the second half, but Indiana dominated thereafter, turning the game with a 28-3 run in the third and fourth quarters.

Indiana outscored Utah 54-28 in the final 17 minutes.

"I don't think we've played a better 14 minutes of basketball all year," Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said.

And while a lot went right for the Pacers, Granger kept scoring and scoring. And scoring.

"I felt something going -- I felt like I could make anything," Granger said.

"He made every type of shot against us contested 3s, wide-open 3s, and he drove to the basket," Jazz swingman C.J. Miles said. "It was one of those nights. He got rolling. He has a lot of things in his game. He can do just about everything."

Granger had eight points in the third quarter, after which Indiana led 87-83, then with Indiana shooting 70.6 percent in the fourth quarter to pull away, Granger shot 6 of 8 -- 3 of 5 from 3-point range -- to finish with 18 fourth-quarter points.

"Phenomenal," Boozer called Granger. "He hit everything he threw up there. He was really good and he took it right to us."

Said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, "He knows how to get open shots. He can put the ball on the floor and get to the basket. He's a terrific player."

If Granger was the main story, Pacers forward Josh McRoberts again was a key secondary player, helping the Pacers control the interior against a Jazz team that features a solid inside passing game. McRoberts not only scored 11 points, he keyed the Pacers late third-quarter run with a steal, a blocked shot, two rebounds and a layup in a 29-second span. He and Pacers center Roy Hibbert (five blocked shots) combined for eight blocked shots, and helped limit the Jazz to 28 points in the paint.

Utah entered averaging 57 points in the paint in its last five games.

"We made it difficult for them to score in the paint in the second half," O'Brien said.

The result was a surprising and disappointing finish for the Jazz, who entered the game with a chance to move into sole possession of second place in the West.

"They played excellent in the second half," Sloan said. "Our defense was non-existent. They did a great job getting people open and they got on a roll. We couldn't shut them down. I was disappointed in our energy level in a game as important as this. I didn't know if they need a memo to tell them where they are."

Said Granger, "We put forth a very good effort tonight and the results show. We played with high intensity and high efficiency and everybody helped each other out the whole game."
