(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers won their second game in a row, defeating the Golden State Warriors 127-120 at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Golden State opened the game with a 9-0 run, but the Pacers clawed back by outscoring the Warriors 40-to-20 over the rest of the first quarter to take an eleven-point lead at the end of the period.

Golden State would regain the lead briefly in the third and fourth quarters, but the Pacers would take the lead for good on a pair of Jarrett Jack free throws with four minutes remaining and would hold off several charges by the Warriors.

Danny Granger led Indiana with 41 points and eleven rebounds. Jack finished with 24 points and Marquis Daniels added 23 as the Pacers improve to 9-and-16.

Jamal Crawford scored 29 points to lead Golden State with Marco Belinelli adding 21 points and former Pacer Stephen Jackson finishing with 20 points.

The Warriors have lost four in a row to fall to 7-and-19. The Pacers' two-game homestand concludes Friday night against Eric Gordon and the Los Angeles Clippers.
