Pacers Face Nets At Home This Tuesday

Last updated on Monday, December 22, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers host the New Jersey Nets on Tuesday night.

The Pacers split their two games over the weekend, losing to the Los Angeles Clippers at home on Friday before beating the 76ers in Philadelphia on Saturday to move to 10-and-17 on the season.

The blue-and-gold hope to have Troy Murphy, Marquis Daniels and Danny Granger back in the lineup against the Nets. The three missed both games last weekend after being hospitalized with viral infections. Granger and Daniels are Indiana's leading scorers while Murphy is the team's top rebounder.

TJ Ford led the Pacers in the win over Philadelphia, scoring 25 points and hitting the game-winner with just under four seconds remaining.

Ford was also questionable for last weekend's games after straining a groin and missing Wednesday night's win over Golden State. Ford wound up playing 30 minutes in the blue-and-gold's double-overtime loss to the Clippers on Friday before being the hero against the Sixers on Saturday.
