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.
