Pacers Look To Extended Current Winning Streak

Last updated on Friday, December 19, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers look to tie their longest winning streak of the season tonight as they host the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Pacers are coming off back-to-back wins over Washington and Golden State to improve to 9-and-16. Indiana won three-straight games back in November.

The Clippers are 7-and-18 but have been playing well of late, winning four of their last six.

The acquisition of former Marion High School star Zach Randolph from the New York Knicks has been a key to LA 's resurgence following a 3-and-16 start.

Tonight's game also marks a homecoming for Indianapolis native Eric Gordon. The 2007 Indiana Mister Basketball is a rookie for the Clippers after spending one season at Indiana University.

The Pacers could be without starters Troy Murphy and TJ Ford again tonight. Murphy missed Wednesday night's win over Golden State with flu-like symptoms while Ford strained a groin during pregame warmups before the game with the Warriors.
