Pacers Home After Disappointing Western Road Trip

Last updated on Tuesday, January 15, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers are back home following their longest road trip of the season.

The Pacers picked up one win on the five-game west coast trip and are 17-and-22 on the season. The trip ended with a 106-101 setback to the Golden State Warriors in Oakland.

Sunday's loss marked the third time during the five-game trip that the blue-and-gold lost after building a double-digit lead. They have lost a total of nine games this season in which they have held a lead of ten points or more.

The Warriors and the Pacers meet again tomorrow night at Conseco Fieldhouse, but not before Golden State opens their four-game road trip at Minnesota tonight.

The blue-and-gold have dropped nine of their last eleven games overall and two of their last three at the Fieldhouse.

Head Coach Jim O'Brien continues to experiment with starting lineups, breaking out a small lineup during the west coast trip.

O'Brien says he will continue to use the quicker lineup, which consists of Jermaine O'Neal at center, Danny Granger and Mike Dunleavy at forward and Kareem Rush and Jamaal Tinsley at guard.
