(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Danny Granger scored 25 of his game-high 33 points in the second half as the Indiana Pacers came from behind to defeat the Sacramento Kings 102-95 at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Sacramento jumped on the Pacers early, building a double-digit lead early in the second quarter.

They would lead by as many as 15 in the first half before Indiana used a late run to cut the deficit to nine at halftime.

The Blue and Gold jumped on the Kings in the third quarter, going on a 20-to-4 run over the first eight and-a-half minutes as they would not relinquish the lead again.

Troy Murphy added a double-double with 19 points and 13 rebounds as the Pacers won their eighth-straight game at home.

Jason Thompson and Beno Udrih scored 18 points apiece with Thompson also pulling down eleven rebounds for Sacramento.

Former Purdue star Carl Landry added 17 points and ten boards and Tyreke Evans, who missed the last four games with a concussion, had 17 points and ten assists as the Kings lost their fifth game in a row.

Indiana has won six of its last seven games to improve to 28-47 on the season.

The four-game home stand continues on Friday night when the Pacers host the Miami Heat.
