Granger leads Pacers past Hawks 114-102

Friday, April 8, 2011

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Danny Granger scored 28 points to help the Indiana Pacers beat the Atlanta Hawks 114-102 on Friday night.

Darren Collison had 16 points and 10 assists, and Roy Hibbert added 14 points and 13 rebounds for the Pacers, who have won five of their past six and ended a nine-game losing streak against the Hawks. The Pacers improved to 20-16 under interim coach Frank Vogel.

It wasn't a sellout, but the crowd of 15,879 was lively in the Pacers' first game since clinching their first playoff berth since 2006.

Jeff Teague, an Indianapolis native, led Atlanta with 21 points. Joe Johnson added 17 for the Hawks, who lost their third straight.

Atlanta forward Josh Smith missed his second straight game with a sprained right knee.
