Pacers Welcome Golden State To Bankers Life Fieldhouse

Last updated on Tuesday, February 26, 2013

(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Pacers can stay perfect in the second half of the regular season by beating the Golden State Warriors tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Indiana punctuated their two game sweep over the Detroit Pistons last weekend with a 90-72 win Saturday at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit.

The Pacers beat Detroit by a combined 50 points in the two meetings and saw the return of Danny Granger to the lineup on Saturday.

Granger didn't score until the fourth quarter and was rusty in playing his first game of the season, shooting 1 of 10 from the field.

Indiana lead the New York Knicks by a half game for the second best record in the Eastern Conference at 34-21 and have the top-ranked scoring defense in the NBA.

Golden State were having a terrible month of February until winning their last three games, including Sunday's 100-99 win at the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Warriors have the sixth best record in the Western Conference at 33-23 and beat Indiana by 11 points at ORACLE Arena on December first.

This is the final regular season meeting between the two teams.

Tipoff from Bankers Life Fieldhouse is at 7:00.
