Keep digging- Indiana beats Phoenix 122-114

For the second consecutive game, the Pacers overcame a twenty plus point deficit. From AP-

Indiana’s formula for victory this week has been simple: fall behind by more than 20 points, then stage a frantic rally to win.

Danny Granger scored 33 points, Mike Dunleavy added a season-high 30 and the Pacers overcame a 24-point deficit to beat the Phoenix Suns 122-114 on Wednesday night.

It has been a pretty impressive week for the Pacers. For the second straight game, Indiana trailed by more than 20 points in the second quarter and won.

It was the second straight game the Pacers trailed by more than 20 points in the second quarter and won. Indiana was down 23 against Toronto on Monday night before rallying for a victory.

“One of these days, we’ll get a lead,” Pacers coach Jim O’Brien said. “That’s another tremendous, gutsy comeback for our team.”

The biggest comeback seen in the 2009-10 NBA season was when Sacramento rallied from 35 points down to beat Chicago.

Last night’s loss was a painful one for the Suns in more than one way.

Watson elbowed Nash on a drive to the basket with just over four minutes left in the first quarter. A Suns spokeswoman said a tooth went through Nash’s upper lip. He received four stitches on his upper lip and three on the inside of his mouth.

Pardon the pun, but I think Nash and the Suns will make a quick rebound from their loss to Indiana.
