Pacers To Host Suns Of Phoenix

Last updated on Tuesday, December 4, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers are back home tonight to host the Phoenix Suns.

The Pacers are coming off a four-game western trip that saw the blue-and-gold go 3-and-1 and return to .500 at 9-and-9.

The road trip was marked by the return of Jermaine O'Neal to the lineup. The six-time all-star missed five games with a knee and calf injury to his left leg. O'Neal then hurt his shoulder in Friday night's loss in Seattle, but rebounded to have a 20-point, 15-rebound performance in Sunday's win over the Clippers that concluded the trip.

Jamaal Tinsley was the key to Sunday's win in LA, scoring a season-high 29 points while hitting three key three-point baskets down the stretch.

The Suns are 13-and-4 and enter play tonight a game and-a-half behind the San Antonio Spurs for the best record in the Western Conference.

Phoenix has five players averaging double figures in scoring led by Amare Stoudamire's 19-point-three points per game.

The Suns also boast two-time league MVP Steve Nash, who averages just under 19 points and a league-high eleven-point-one assists per contest.

You can hear all of the action after Lady Stars basketball tonight on 1340 AM WBIW.
