Pacers Road Losing Streak Continues

Last updated on Thursday, February 19, 2009

(CHARLOTTE, NC) - The Indiana Pacers’ road and injury woes continue as the blue-and-gold lost to the Charlotte Bobcats 103-94.

Gerald Wallace led Charlotte with 25 points and ten rebounds with Raymond Felton adding 16 points as the Bobcats passed the Pacers for twelfth place in the NBA's eastern conference.

Troy Murphy had 18 points and 16 rebounds for Indiana with Jarrett Jack also scoring 18 as the Pacers lost their tenth-straight road game to fall to 22-and-34 on the season.

Indiana began last night's game without Mike Dunleavy and Jeff Foster. They finished it without all-star forward Danny Granger. Granger left with a sprained foot early in the second quarter and did not return. Granger has been nursing a sore knee for the past couple of weeks, but Wednesday night's injury appeared to be unrelated.

Dunleavy and Foster have missed Indiana's last four games. Dunleavy has been sidelined with soreness in his right knee while Foster has been bothered by a sore lower back.

The two-game road trip concludes Friday night in Minneapolis when the Pacers take on the Minnesota Timberwolves.
