Pacers Battle Lowly Hornets Tonight At Bankers Life Fieldhouse

Last updated on Tuesday, February 21, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers look to sweep a three-game home stand tonight when they host the New Orleans Hornets.

The Pacers are 19-12 after opening the home stand with wins over New Jersey and Charlotte.

The Hornets are on the back end of a back-to-back, losing at Oklahoma City 101-93 last night to fall to 7-24.

New Orleans was riding a three-game winning streak before last night's setback.

Former Pacer Jarrett Jack led the Hornets with 18 points last night.

Jack is averaging just under 15 points per game and is New Orleans' leading scorer in the absence of Eric Gordon.

Gordon played in just two games this season, averaging 21 points before going down with a knee injury.

The Indianapolis native will not be active tonight following arthroscopic knee surgery one week ago.

All five Pacers starters average double figures in points with Danny Granger leading the way at 18.3 points per game.
