Behind Granger, Pacers rally for eighth straight home win

INDIANAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Whatever the mathematics, the reality for the Indiana Pacers these days is unavoidable.

They're playing pretty well. And that's particularly true at home.

With forward Danny Granger continuing his late-season offensive surge, the Pacers on Tuesday didn't start hot. They just finished strong, rallying from an early deficit to pull away for a comfortable 102-95 victory over the Sacramento Kings in front of 13,339 at Conseco Fieldhouse.

And even though the Pacers were officially eliminated from postseason contention this past Sunday, the victory was little surprise for Indiana.

They have won eight consecutive home games.

And that streak included all six games played at Conseco in March.

"We want to protect our house," said Pacers center Roy Hibbert, one of four Indiana players scoring in double figures Tuesday. "We're not just winning by the skin of our teeth. We're coming out and playing well and winning by double digits."

That wasn't true early Tuesday. But it was very true late.

The Pacers (28-47), who beat three postseason contenders -- Utah, Oklahoma City and Charlotte -- at home during March, trailed by six after the first quarter, then by as many as 15 --48-33 with 5:01 remaining in the second quarter.

"We were not aggressive," Kings forward Jason Thompson said. "I think we quit playing our game and we got stagnant on both offense and defense. The way we played in the first half, we would have liked to have extended the lead to 12 or 15 points, because if not, there's a good chance they're going to cut it to five or less. Unfortunately, that's what they did."

The Pacers then outscored Sacramento 36-12 late in the second quarter and early in the third to take a 69-60 lead. The Kings (24-51) never got closer than three again, and by midway through the fourth quarter, the Pacers pushed the lead to 12, 92-80.

"We made it a point to pick it up and play with a little more energy in the second half," Granger said. "We moved the ball well, got stops, got boards and got the win. This is a way we would like to play for the rest of the year."

Indiana, after shooting 37.2 percent in the first half from the field, shot 57.5 percent in the final two quarters, with Granger scoring 25 in that span.

"We didn't come out with the same energy we had in the first half," said Kings guard Tyreke Evans, who missed the previous five games due to a concussion. "They were the home team and they took advantage of it. They came out and made shots. Danny came out and had a great second half."

As has been the case throughout much of March, Granger -- an All-Star at the swing position last season -- was critical for the Pacers.

"Danny is really, really good," Kings coach Paul Westphal said. "He actually missed some open shots and made some guarded shots."

Granger, who has scored 30 or more points in five of the last six games, scored 33 Tuesday, converting 13 of 20 field goals, including 4 of 7 from 3-point range. Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said Tuesday although Granger has played well for the last month, a key has been that the Pacers overall have shot far better in that span, enabling them to move the ball better offensively and therefore create better opportunities for Granger, whose game depends on slashing and getting open outside looks.

"We're trying to keep a team on the court around Danny that can space the court," O'Brien said. "That's a big deal."

O'Brien said the opposite was true of the fact that Tuesday's game was his 100th victory as Pacers coach,

"Irrelevant," he said. "The fact that I had no idea tells you how irrelevant it is."

And while the playoffs long have been out of the picture for Indiana, O'Brien said what's not irrelevant is that the Pacers have played better in the last month than they have all season. Expected to be a solid shooting team, they struggled offensively early, but in the last month have improved. That has helped not only Granger, but the team overall, and has the Pacers feeling far better about themselves than in December and January.

"It's nice to establish a nice home-court advantage," O'Brien said.

"I think we've concentrated a little more and our effort and hard work to knock down shots has resulted in Ws," Pacers forward Troy Murphy said. "Chemistry in the last month has been great. We just want to finish this out with a strong edge .

"We need to play well because this is a team that has a lot of talent and didn't do that well the first part of the year."
