Pacers Snap Losing Streak With Overtime Win

Last updated on Thursday, January 15, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 110-106 win over the Detroit Pistons in overtime.

Danny Granger led Indiana with 24 points and forced the extra session, hitting a 20-foot jumper over Tayshaun Prince with 3.9 seconds left in regulation. Granger also had ten rebounds.

TJ Ford added 23 points with Troy Murphy finishing with 18 points and 13 boards. Murphy hit a pair of three-pointers in overtime as the Pacers built an eight-point lead and were able to withstand a pair of late threes by the pistons.

Mike Dunleavy made his first start of the season, scoring 12 points and grabbing six rebounds in 33 minutes of action.

Rodney Stuckey led Detroit with a game-high 30 points with Allen Iverson adding 23 as the Pistons lost for the second-straight night.

Richard Hamilton was back for Detroit but showed the effects of missing eight games with a groin injury. Hamilton scored just nine points on 4-for-13 shooting and sat out most of the fourth quarter and the overtime period.

With the win, the Pacers improve to 14-and-25 and host the Toronto Raptors on Friday night.
