Game On: Pacers @ Hornets

Published: January 19, 2009

James Posey vs. Danny GrangerLocal kid Danny Granger and the Indiana Pacers are in town today to take on the Hornets. It’s an early tip (2:30pm Central) because of MLK day, and the first 8,000 folks through the door get a little David West with a loose head.

The Pacers are 15-25 on the season, 6-16 on the road and are coming off wins over Toronto and Detroit at home. Our guys beat the Pacers on the road about three weeks ago thanks to a clutch jumper from David West. Indiana were without T.J. Ford and Mike Dunleavy for that game, and Granger picked up the slack by dropping 34 points on us.

Predicted Gil McGregor puns:
  • Danny’s the lone Granger for the Pacers.
  • Troy as he might, Murphy just can’t get a rebound.
  • Chris Paul just had Travis for Diener.
  • You can’t Dunleavy that guy wide open.
