Pacers Back At Home Wednesday Night

Last updated on Wednesday, December 17, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers are back at Conseco Fieldhouse tonight to face the Golden State Warriors.

Indiana begins a stretch in which it will play five of its next seven games at home after playing ten of its last 13 on the road.

The Pacers are coming off a 1-and-3 road trip, winning the finale Monday night in Washington to snap a season-high six-game losing streak. Danny granger led Indiana with 27 points against the wizards as the pacers improved to 8-and-16 on the season.

Monday's win was just the second in seven attempts for the blue-and-gold against sub-.500 teams. The Warriors enter tonight's game with a 7-and-18 record and have lost their last three games.

Tonight's game is the beginning of a five-game road trip for Golden State. They have been without leading scorer Corey Maggette for the last five games. Maggette is nursing a strained hamstring and did not travel to Indianapolis.

Former Pacer Stephen Jackson has also been hampered by an injury to his left hand, but has been playing.

Tune in tonight to 1340 AM WBIW at 6:30pm for all of the Pacers basketball action.
