With Granger coming back, this is good news for the Pacers who suffered a loss to the Miami Heat 97-94 on Wednesday night. When Granger comes back the Pacers will be taking on the Houston Rockets, a team who at 17-9 likes to push the ball up the court.
Paul George and Lance Stephenson will both be relieved as Granger also provides a scoring threat on the court but don’t expect him to score early and often. Granger will only be playing 15-20 minutes so his playing time will be monitored throughout the game.
In his career, Granger has improved as a player every year since coming out of New Mexico in 2005. Over his career, he is averaging 18.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game.
