Pacers Vs. Nets Final Score: Indiana Beats New Jersey, 93-88

Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger entered Thursday's game battling a sprained left ankle, but that didn't stop him from dropping a game-best 32 points and helping his team down the New Jersey Nets 93-88 Thursday night at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. The Nets (8-23) lost their 10th straight game to the Pacers (18-12), who also snapped a five-game losing streak.

The Nets, who had the game tied at 69-69 with 8:15 left in the game, were led by 29 points from point guard Deron Williams. Center Kris Humphries tallied 24 points and 10 rebounds, but New Jersey couldn't over come its 19 turnovers and poor shooting from behind the 3-point arc (4-for-17, 23.5 percent).

Indiana's Paul George gave the Pacers the lead for good when he hit a jumper that sparked a 9-2 run.
