Indiana Pacers Team Report – November 26

=== Indiana Pacers Team Report – November 26 ===

(Sports Network) – The short-handed Indiana Pacers will once again flash
their team depth tonight, when they tangle with the expansion Charlotte
Bobcats at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Indiana has won two of its first three since the league suspended Ron Artest,
Jermaine O’Neal and Stephen Jackson for their roles in last Friday’s brawl at
the Palace of Auburn Hills. The Pacers posted their most unlikely victory to
date last night, as they defeated Minnesota, 106-102.

Jamaal Tinsley had a tremendous all-around game with 20 points, 14 assists,
seven rebounds and five steals to pace Indiana to its second straight win.
Austin Croshere collected 25 points and 11 rebounds for the Pacers, while Fred
Jones chipped in 17 points.

Scot Pollard and James Jones has 13 points each for Indiana. James Jones is
averaging 15.6 points and 7.3 rebounds over the last three contests in place
of Artest.

The Pacers made a few moves on Wednesday to fill out their roster, signing
Britton Johnsen and Tremaine Fowlkes. Johnsen had two points in 12 minutes of
action against Minnesota, while Fowlkes went scoreless in six minutes.

Indiana, which will be closing out a four-game homestand tonight, owns a 4-2
mark at Conseco this season.

The Bobcats are 1-5 when they score under 100 points this season, while
Indiana is 6-1 when it allows below 100 points.

This is the first ever meeting between these teams.
