Indiana Pacers Team Report – December 11
=== Indiana Pacers Team Report – December 11 ===
(Sports Network) – The Indiana Pacers try to stop a six-game losing streak
this evening when they welcome the Sacramento Kings to Conseco Fieldhouse.
Indiana’s latest loss came on Friday, as it dropped a 95-86 decision to the
Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center. Reggie Miller netted 17 points for the
Pacers, who are 3-7 since Ron Artest, Jermaine O’Neal and Stephen Jackson were
suspended for fighting with Detroit fans on November 19.
Austin Croshere added 14 points and nine boards in the loss.
Guard Jamaal Tinsley missed his second straight game with a sprained right
ankle. To make matters worse, guard Fred Jones left last night’s loss after
turning his right ankle in the third quarter. Both players are questionable
for tonight’s tilt.
The Pacers are 6-3 in their arena this season.
Sacramento topped the Pacers earlier in the season and has won five straight
in the series, including the last two in Indiana. However, the Kings have
dropped 14 of their last 17 at Conseco Fieldhouse.
