Pacers Let Western Road Game Slip Through Fingers

Last updated on Monday, January 14, 2008

(OAKLAND, CA) - The Indiana Pacers wrapped up their longest road trip of the season with a 106-101 loss to the Golden State Warriors in Oakland.

Monta Ellis scored nine of his game-high 29 points in the Warriors' fourth quarter comeback. Baron Davis added 27 points as Golden State overcame a 17-point deficit.

Jermaine O'Neal led Indiana with 27 points with Danny Granger adding 20. Mike Dunleavy returned to Oakland with 18 points and ten rebounds, much to the displeasure of the crowd.

Dunleavy and Troy Murphy were booed during their first trip back to Golden State after being traded by the Warriors to the Pacers almost a year ago. That eight-player deal also brought Ike Diogu to Indiana with Al Harrington and Stephen Jackson heading to Golden State.

The Pacers dropped four of five on their western road trip to fall to 17-and-22. They face Golden State again on Wednesday night at Conseco Fieldhouse.
