    Pacers team notes

    November 5, 2008 ∑ Filed Under General, Indiana Pacers
    Danny Grangerís 33 points at Detroit on Wednesday, October 29, were the most by a Pacersí player in the seasonís first game since Jalen Rose hit for 43 points at New Jersey, October 30, 2001.

    Since scoring nine points at Detroit in February, Granger has scored in double figures in a career-high 29 straight regular season games.
    Bostonís 79 points in the Pacersí home opener were the fewest ever allowed by Indiana in its NBA home opener.

    With its sellout crowd of 18,165 in the home opener vs. Boston, November 1, the Pacersí matched their total of sellouts in 2007-08.

    The win over the Celtics was Indianaís fifth in a game in which it did not score 100 points since Jim OíBrien became head coach in 2007. In that span, the Pacers are 5-26 when not reaching the century mark.

    Marquis Danielsí team-high 10 rebounds vs. Boston were his most ever in a Pacersí uniform and tied his overall career-best.

    Troy Murphy registered the Pacersí first double-double of the 2008-09 season with 13 points and a game-high 15 boards at Detroit, October 29. His 14 defensive rebounds in that game matched his most ever with the Pacers.

    Murphy had a game-high five assists in the win over Boston and he has led the team in assists 10 times in its last 58 regular season games.

    Last season, the Pacers were ninth in the NBA with an average of just over five blocked shots a game (5.02 bpg). Thus far in 2008-09, the Pacers have averaged a league-leading 8.0 bpg.

    Pacers team notes

    In addition to leading the team with an average of 15.1 ppg, T.J. Ford also led the Pacers with 38 assists (4.75 apg) and 12 steals (1.5 spg) in preseason.

    Among those that played at least half the preseason games, Roy Hibbert led the team with an average of 6.0 rpg. He was also the teamís top offensive rebounder with a total of 18 and the best shot-blocker with 15 rejections. Hibbert recorded one of the Pacersí two double-doubles in preseason with 12 points and 12 rebounds in the teamís win vs. Memphis, October 17.

    The Pacers finished the 2008 preseason with a record of 4-4, their 16th preseason at, or above, .500 in the last 19 years. All-time, the Pacers have had a sub-.500 record in preseason just seven times.

    Led by Roy Hibbertís four, the Pacers blocked 13 shots against the Memphis Grizzlies at Conseco Fieldhouse, October 17. That was the most blocked shots by any NBA team during the preseason. The Pacers had four different players block at least two shots in that game.

    The Pacers will start the season with a game on the road for the fifth time in the last six seasons, as they visit the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday, 10/29. The Pacers head into that game having lost six in a row to the Pistons. But, their last win against Detroit came at The Palace of Auburn Hills, December 9, 2006.

    When the Pacers host the defending NBA Champion Boston Celtics on opening night, it will mark just the third time in the Pacersí 33 NBA seasons that they have hosted the leagueís defending champion in their home opener.
    The only other times that the Pacers played the reigning champion on opening night were in 1976 when they also hosted the Celtics in their very first NBA home game, and in 1983 when the Philadelphia 76ers provided the opposition on opening night.
