(Cleveland, OH) - Danny Granger scored nine points in his preseason debut to help the Indiana Pacers beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 100-82.
Granger has missed the entire preseason with an injured knee and shot 4-for-7 in 13 minutes last night, including a three pointer.
David West led the team with 15 points and eight rebounds, and DJ Augustin had nine points and 11 assists at starting point guard.
Augustin has been substituting for the injured George Hill, who could return to the starting lineup Friday night in the preseason finale against the Chicago Bulls.
Tipoff from the Joyce Center in South Bend is at 7:00.
The Pacers open the regular season next Wednesday at the Toronto Raptors.
