Granger's Buzzer Beater Pushes Pacers Past Knicks

Last updated on Wednesday, March 16, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Danny Granger hit a fade away jumper with three-tenths of a second remaining to give the Indiana Pacers a 119-117 win over the New York Knicks.

The Pacers take both ends of a home and home series with New York as their 106-93 win at Madison Square Garden on Sunday halted a six-game losing streak for the Pacers.

Granger finished with 26 points, overshadowing Tyler Hansbrough's career-high 30-point effort.

The Knicks were led by Carmelo Anthony's 29 points with Amare Stoudamire adding 21 points and ten rebounds as New York has lost three games in a row.

The Pacers move a half-game ahead of Charlotte for eighth place in the East.

Indiana is back in action tonight as they face the Celtics in Boston.
