Offensive Outburst Leads Pacers To Victory Over Raptors

Last updated on Wednesday, February 3, 2010

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers recorded a much needed win Tuesday night with a 130-115 victory over the Toronto Raptors.

It was the second time in three nights the two teams squared off on the hardwood.

Pacers Head Coach Jim O'Brien did not coach Tuesday's game because he was out of town attending the funeral of his mother-in-law.

Assistant Coach Lester Conner took over the team for the evening.

Danny Granger scored 23 points as the blue and gold snapped their three-game losing streak, and ended the Raptors' winning streak at five.

Troy Murphy had 20 points and 14 rebounds, Roy Hibbert had 18 points to go a long with his nine rebounds. Earl Watson recorded a season high 11 assists.

Despite the loss, Chris Bosh had 35 points and 15 rebounds, and Andrea Bargnani scored a career high 34 points for the Raptors.

It was the most points scored this season by the Pacers, who scored fewer than 100 points in six of their previous nine games.

With the win, the Pacers improve to 17-32 and are back in action Friday night with the Detroit Pistons inside Conseco Fieldhouse.
