Pacers Win On Granger Buzzer Beater

Last updated on Thursday, January 8, 2009

(PHOENIX, AZ) - Danny Granger hit a three-pointer as time expired to give the Indiana Pacers a 113-110 win over the Phoenix Suns.

The Pacers led by as many as 16 points and held an eleven-point lead midway through the fourth quarter when the Suns made their comeback, taking a 110-108 lead on Leandro Barbosa's three-pointer with 45 seconds remaining. Granger tied the game with a jumper with 35 seconds left.

Amare Stoudamire and Jason Richardson missed shots in the final seconds with Jeff Foster grabbing the rebound off Richardson's miss with nine-tenths of a second remaining to set up Granger's buzzer-beater.

Granger finished with a game-high 37 points with Mike Dunleavy adding 14 in his first action of the regular season.

Stoudamire led Phoenix with 23 points and eleven rebounds with Grant Hill and Barbosa adding 18 points apiece as the suns see their three-game winning streak come to an end.

The Pacers have won three of their last four and pick up their first win on their current five-game western road trip. The trip continues Friday night in Los Angeles as Indiana takes on the Lakers.
