Pacers lose to Hornets, streak ends at 3


Oh well…

A 101-96 loss to the New Orleands Hornets at home.  At least it was the second game of a back-to-back.  At least Hibbert scored a career high 27 points and grabbed 10 boards.  At least Dahntay Jones played well and aggresively for the first time in a while, with 16 points.  At least, on a night where Granger, Murphy and Dunleavy all had off games, the team still managed to keep it close.

Nevertheless, a loss is a loss.  Pacers drop to 14-26, and fall to 12th in the East.  Still 5 games out of the 8th and final playoff spot.

The road doesn’t get any easier from here – 3 road games in a row, starting with Miami, then the next night in Orlando, and then Detroit.
