Granger Suspended But Pacers Still Able To Snap Losing Streak

Last updated on Wednesday, March 10, 2010

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 107-96 win over the Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers.

Dahntay Jones led Indiana with 25 points with Brandon Rush adding a season-high 24 as the Blue and Gold won for just the third time in their last 14 games.

Rookie Jrew Holliday led Philadelphia with 21 points with Samuel Dalembert adding 16 points and eleven rebounds as the Sixers have dropped six of their last seven.

The Pacers win the season series two games to one as they improve to 21-and-43.

Indiana was without Danny Granger for last night's game.

Granger was suspended one game without pay for fighting with Phoenix Suns Center Channing Frye during the Pacers' 113-105 loss last Saturday night in Phoenix.

Granger served his suspension last night.

Frye was also suspended one game and will serve his penalty on Friday when the Suns host the Lakers.

Indiana Guard Earl Watson was fined 30-thousand dollars while Pacers Center Roy Hibbert and Suns Guard Jason Richardson were fined 25-thousand dollars apiece for their roles in the incident.

Indiana hits the road for a pair of games this weekend, beginning in Boston on Friday night and at Milwaukee on Sunday afternoon.
