Pacers Fall To Last Second Jumper

Last updated on Wednesday, December 24, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Devin Harris hit a 22-foot jumper as time expired to give the New Jersey Nets a 108-107 win over the Indiana Pacers at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Danny Granger had given Indiana the lead when he hit a jumper with ten seconds remaining, setting up Harris' game-winner from the top of the key.

Vince Carter led all scorers with 38 points with Harris adding 29 points and eleven assists as the Nets halt a two-game skid.

Granger led five Pacers in double-figures with 26 points with rookie Brandon Rush adding 22.

Indiana was shorthanded again. Granger returned after missing the past two games with a viral infection, but Marquis Daniels and Troy Murphy were still missing. Granger, Daniels and Murphy spent last weekend in the hospital recovering from viral infections as the Pacers suffered a double-overtime loss against the Clippers last Friday and a road win in Philadelphia on Saturday.

The loss drops Indiana to 10-and-18 on the season. The Pacers are off until Friday night when they travel to Memphis to face the Grizzlies.
