Granger leads Pacers to 107-83 rout of Pistons

Danny Granger scored 25 points to help Indiana beat the Detroit Pistons 107-83 on Friday night in one of the Pacers' most lopsided wins in the series. Only a last-second layup by Detroit prevented the Pacers from tying the franchise record for its biggest win over the Pistons, a 26-point blowout in 1995. Brandon Rush added 16 points for the Pacers, who won their second straight. Indiana's T.J. Ford played for the first time in 19 games and finished with 11 points and five assists. Ben Gordon scored 26 points and Rodney Stuckey added 16 for the Pistons. It was the largest victory margin of the season for the Pacers, and their second straight game shooting better than 50 percent from the field. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press.
