Pacers Beat Warriors, Lose Ford

Last updated on Thursday, November 12, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Danny Granger scored 31 points and grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 108-94 win over the Golden State Warriors.

Roy Hibbert and Earl Watson scored 16 points apiece as the Pacers won their third game in a row to move back to .500 at 3-3.

Corey Maggette led Golden State with 21 points with Anthony Randolph adding 17 points and 13 rebounds as the Warriors fall to 2-5.

The Pacers, however, cannot seem to get through a game without losing a key player due to injury.

Starting point guard TJ Ford left Wednesday night's win over the Warriors early in the first quarter with back spasms.

Ford had scored six of Indiana's first 13 points when he was forced to leave the game after coming up lame following a pump fake against Golden State's Monta Ellis.

He did not return. The Pacers were already missing Troy Murphy, Jeff Foster and Mike Dunleavy due to injuries.

Brandon Rush started for the blue-and-gold despite spraining an ankle during last Friday's win over Washington.

The Pacers are off until Saturday night when they host the Boston Celtics.
