(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers are back home tonight to face the Charlotte Bobcats at Conseco Fieldhouse.
The Pacers are returning from a three-game road trip. They picked up a victory Wednesday night in Houston to snap a three-game losing streak. Indiana trailed by as many as 13 points in the second half but came back on the strength of some clutch shooting by Troy Murphy before Danny Granger's tip-in of his own miss with 13 seconds remaining proved to be the game-winner.
Murphy led the way with 21 points and 14 rebounds. Eleven of those points came in the final five and-a-half minutes of the game.
The Bobcats are 4-and-10 in their first season under former Pacers coach Larry Brown. Charlotte has dropped five of their last six following their Wednesday night loss in Toronto.
