In the excitement of beating Houston we kind of neglected that Danny Granger has passed Chuck Person for 10th in all time scoring for the Indiana Pacers.
With his 32 point performance he now has a career total of 9103 bringing him to 10th.
Assuming that he does not suffer any injury or does not go into a complete tailspin he should pass Freddie Lewis this season for 9th and he has a decent chance of catching Mel Daniels for 8th.
Assuming he is back next season and assuming he has a normal scoring year for him it is not out of the realm of possibility that he could jump all the way up to 3rd on the all time scoring list.
He will never catch Reggie Miller but if he can get another two years here he should be the 2nd all time leading scorer in Pacers history.
Ironically both Danny & Reggie have the exact same career scoring avg. at 18.2ppg
Congratulations to the Captain, Danny Granger and here is to several thousand more points before your career is over.
