(NEW ORLEANS, LA) - The Indiana Pacers wrap up the preseason with road games at New Orleans on Tuesday and Dallas on Thursday.

The Pacers are 3-and-3 in exhibitions after splitting their two games this weekend, beating Memphis 112-86 on Friday at Conseco Fieldhouse before dropping a 106-98 decision to the Spurs in San Antonio on Saturday.

Troy Murphy made his preseason debut against the Spurs, scoring twelve points in 19 minutes. Murphy has been sidelined with a sore left achilles.

Mike Dunleavy sat out the San Antonio game after making his debut Friday against Memphis. Head Coach Jim O'Brien says Dunleavy was a little sore after the Grizzlies game and that Saturday's rest was a precautionary move.

Dunleavy scored nine points in twelve minutes on Friday night but played with a noticeable limp. Dunleavy has been slowed with right knee tendonitis during the preseason.

Travis Diener is the only Pacer who has yet to play in the preseason. Diener is expected to miss at least another two weeks as he recovers from offseason foot surgery.
