Preseason Game 4 vs. Denver Nuggets

The Nuggets (or No-guts, as my Colorado friend refers to them) pulled away from the Pacers in the 4th quarter for a 114-102 win. For more on the game played in Cincy, check out Mark Montieth's version of events since he actually saw the game. Highlights from the story and box score:

  • JO (hamstring) and Danny Granger (fell on hip) both left the game with injuries though neither is considered severe. JT sat out recovering from the shot to the mouth he took during Monday's game. He should return before Christmas.
  • Marshall and Powell continued to make strong claims for a roster spot. There still may only be room for one of them.
  • Saras was 2-4 from 3-ball territory. Keep firing Runi! That stroke has to come back sooner or later.
  • Good stat: Rebounds favor Pacers (Ind 45, Den 39)
  • Bad stat: Turnovers by Pacers = 27
