Pacers Travel To Philadelphia As Granger's Shooting Slump Continues

Last updated on Monday, January 9, 2012

(PHILADELPHIA, PA) - The Indiana Pacers are back on the road tonight as they face the Seventy-Sixers in Philadelphia.

The Pacers are 6-2 following their 99-77 win over the Charlotte Bobcats Saturday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The biggest concern for the Pacers right now is the shooting slump of leading scorer Danny Granger.

Granger went 3-14 from the field in Friday night's win at Boston and followed that up with a 4-12 effort in Saturday night's victory over the Bobcats.

The Sixers are coming off a 97-62 win over Toronto Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

They have won four games in a row and are 2-0 at home this season.

Philly is led in scoring by guards Lou Williams and Jrue Holiday.

Williams averages 17 points per game while Holiday is scoring at just under 15 points per contest.

Center Spencer Hawes left Saturday's win over the Raptors with back spasms and is listed as day-to-day.
