Pacers Look To Extend Home Winning Streak

Last updated on Wednesday, February 25, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers will try to extend their home court winning streak to five games tonight when they welcome the Memphis Grizzlies to Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Pacers are coming off a 123-119 loss to the Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Monday night to fall to 24-and-35 on the season.

Indiana was missing three starters in New York. TJ Ford joined Danny Granger and Mike Dunleavy on the sideline after coming down with the flu before Monday's game. Jarrett Jack, Marquis Daniels and Troy Murphy helped pick up the slack. Jack scored a career-high 31 points with Daniels adding 28 and Murphy scoring 19 points and grabbing 21 rebounds against New York.

The Grizzlies are in last place in the southwest division at 15-and-41. They have lost five games in a row, falling at Cleveland last night 94-79.

It is the second of two meetings between Indiana and Memphis this season. The Grizzlies edged the Pacers 108-105 in Memphis back on December 26th.
