Pacers Expect Granger and Murphy To Play Tonight Against Philly

Last updated on Friday, November 14, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers hope to have Danny Granger and Troy Murphy back in the lineup tonight as they welcome the Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers to Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Pacers won their third game in a row with a 98-87 victory over the Nets in New Jersey on Wednesday.

Granger, Indiana's leading scorer, missed the game when his leg cramped up during early warm-ups.

Murphy left Monday night's win over Oklahoma City with a stomach virus and did not make the trip to New Jersey.

With the win over the Nets, the Pacers improved to 3-and-3 on the season.

It is the first time the blue-and-gold have been over .500 since late December of last year.

The Sixers are three and five and snapped a three-game losing streak with a win in Toronto on Wednesday night.

Four of Philly's five starters average double figures in scoring.

Newcomer Elton Brand leads the Sixers in scoring and rebounding, averaging 15-point-eight points and ten and a half boards per game.

The Pacers swept their three games with Philadelphia last season.
