Pacers To Rest-up Before Saturday Matchup

Last updated on Monday, November 5, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers have a few days off to reflect on their 3-and-0 start.

The Pacers picked up their first road win of the season on Saturday night when they beat the Memphis Grizzlies 121-111.

Next up, the Pacers face the Los Angeles Clippers at Conseco Fieldhouse on Wednesday.

Danny Granger and Mike Dunleavy have picked up the slack in scoring as all-star Jermaine O'Neal missed the season opener and has seen limited minutes in Indiana's two other wins. Granger is averaging 22.7 points per game while Dunleavy averages 22.3.

O'Neal missed the final four preseason games and is being limited to six-minute stretches of playing time as he tries to regain his conditioning.

Shawne Williams' suspension is over and the second-year forward will be back in uniform on Wednesday night.

Troy Murphy has missed six-straight games, three preseason and three regular season with a strained left achilles.
