(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Pacers winning streak at Bankers Life Fieldhouse has been reset after losing to the Toronto Raptors Friday, but can re-establish their home dominance tonight by beating another top flight team in the Eastern Conference, the Brooklyn Nets.
The Pacers 15 game winning streak at home, their longest since the 1999-2000 season, came to a screeching halt Friday when Rudy Gay hit a jumper with seconds remaining in overtime to sink Indiana, 100-98.
The Indianapolis Star reported Sunday that Danny Granger has participated in full court drills and could suit up Wednesday against the Charlotte Bobcats.
Granger has missed the entire season with patellar tendinitis in his left knee and has targeted a return before this weekend's all-star break.
Indiana is 31-20 record without Granger and have the third best record in the East.
The Nets were booed for the first time at their brand new Barclays Center Sunday night during a 111-86 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.
Brooklyn was outscored 30-14 during the third quarter in losing for the sixth time in their last nine games.
Brooklyn is fifth in the Eastern Conference at 29-22 and have a road record of 11-12.
Tipoff tonight is at 7:00.
