Pacers Look To Build Win Streak On West Coast Road Trip

Last updated on Monday, November 30, 2009

(OAKLAND, CA) - The Indiana Pacers open a four-game western road trip tonight as they face the Golden State Warriors in Oakland.

The Pacers have been off since Friday night when they lost to the Dallas Mavericks 113-92 to fall to 6-8 on the season.

It was not all bad news for the Pacers against the Mavs.

Danny Granger was back in the lineup after missing Wednesday night's win against the Clippers with a knee sprain.

Granger sat out practice on Saturday and Sunday, as did Mike Dunleavy. Dunleavy saw his first action of the regular season in the loss to Dallas, scoring 13 points in 16 minutes of play.

Granger is expected to start tonight at Golden State while Dunleavy will come off the bench and will be limited in the number of minutes he plays.

The Warriors enter tonight's game having dropped their last two games and are 5-10 on the season.

Golden State is led by guard Monta Ellis, who averages 23 points per game.
