I don't have anything other than the front page of Pacers.com where you find the matchups. No other details that I see, it just says Murphy's back.

It says this; After missing the last three games with a left knee sprain, Troy Murphy will return to the starting lineup tonight. With 43 double-doubles, Murphy needs five in the last eight games to break Clark Kellogg's franchise record of 47. He also needs to play in five more games or pull 35 more rebounds to officially qualify for the league leaders. Currently third (11.8) and sixth in 3-point percentage (.443), he's on track to become the first player to rank in the top 10 in both categories since Larry BIrd.

Anyone else notice that Foster's rebound numbers skyrocketed when Murphy was out

Yep, I think a strong rebounding PF is perfect for Roy.

So is Jeff's Defense as good as Troy's offense and the rebounding a push?

Sorry had to poke it a little?

This is great news. Jeff was great in place of Troy. He needs to continue having his big rebounding nights even with Troy back in the starting lineup. Everyone's really starting to step up the last few games.

I did. He went from averaging 24 minutes a game and 7 rebounds to almost 40 minutes a game and 14 rebounds. So he picked it up a bit more than just an increase in minutes would explain.

With Troy back Jeff got a break and was not in uniform.
