Pacers Look To Bounce Back Against Grizzlies

Last updated on Wednesday, January 2, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers will try to snap a four-game losing streak tonight when they welcome the Memphis Grizzlies to Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Pacers fell to 15-and-17 when they lost a 13-point, fourth-quarter lead in Charlotte before falling to the Bobcats in overtime.

Gerald Wallace torched the pacers for a game-high 36 points, 20 of those coming in the fourth quarter and overtime. It was the sixth time that Indiana has lost after leading by double digits.

One of the problems during the recent slide has been turnovers. The Pacers have averaged 18 turnovers during the losing streak leading to a 77-37 deficit in points off turnovers during that period.

The Grizzlies have dropped five in a row and have the second-worst record in the Western Conference at 8-and-22.

Memphis' latest setback was Sunday in San Antonio when they lost to the defending-champion Spurs 111-87.

Tonight's game is the second of two this season between the Pacers and Grizzlies. Indiana won the first meeting 121-111 on November 3rd at the Fedex Forum.
