Pacers Look To Extend Their Home Winning Streak Against Miami

Last updated on Friday, April 2, 2010

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers will try to extend their eight-game home winning streak tonight when they face Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Pacers extended the streak with a 102-95 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.

Overall, Indiana has won six of its last seven games.

Forward Danny Granger has been on a tear during the streak, scoring 29 points or more in those six victories.

Despite their good play of late, the Blue and Gold are 28-47 and were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention last weekend.

The Heat enter tonight's contest riding a six-game winning streak of their own.

The Heat are coming off a Wednesday night win in Detroit as they improved to 41-34.

Miami stands sixth in the Eastern Conference and have yet to clinch a playoff berth.

The Heat are led in scoring by all-star guard Dwyane Wade, who averages 26 points per game.

Center Jermaine O'Neal is listed as day-to-day with a knee injury.

The former Pacer has missed the Heat's last two games with the injury.
