Last updated on Monday, January 12, 2009

(OAKLAND, CA) - Danny Granger tied his career high with 42 points, but it was not enough as the Indiana Pacers lost to the Golden State Warriors 120-117 in Oakland.

Jamal Crawford scored 32 points to lead the Warriors, including a go-ahead three-pointer with just over eleven seconds remaining.

Crawford hit his jumper over the reach of Granger, who had given Indiana a 117-116 lead with 23-point-eight seconds remaining with a three-pointer of his own. Mike Dunleavy missed a three-pointer with six seconds left and Travis Diener failed on his attempt to tie the game with a three at the buzzer as Indiana falls to 13-and-24 on the season.

Kelenna Azubuike added 21 points as Golden State snapped a five-game losing streak. TJ Ford added 15 points for the Pacers, who have dropped two-straight and three of four on their current road trip.

The five-game trip wraps up tonight as Indiana faces the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City.
