Rally falls short as shorthanded Pacers lose to Bucks


TJ Ford is out for seven to ten days with a groin injury, and Mike Dunleavy Jr is day-to-day with an eye contusion.

So I guess you could say that the Indiana Pacers were a little more shorthanded than usual when they faced the Bucks in Milwaukee.

Still, the Pacers rallied in the fourth quarter and were within striking distance with the clock winding down, but as usual, all their efforts culminated in another loss, 98-94.

Granger led the way with 29 points, Earl Watson had 15 and Troy Murphy had 14 and 13.

Not really much to say except that the Pacers are now well on their way to a top five lottery pick in the next NBA draft.
