Indiana Pacers Getting Inside
Forget throwing in the towel on their season, the Pacers are still trying to make a run for one of the final playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.

Indiana showed it's serious about getting to the postseason when point guard Flip Murray signed a contract with them for the rest of the season.

Murray, who is with his sixth team, was waived by Detroit on Feb. 22. He'll backup Travis Diener at point guard and also play some shooting guard, which is his natural position.

Murray's signing further indicates that Jamaal Tinsley won't be returning to the lineup anytime soon. Tinsley hasn't played since early February. He's still not close to returning to the practice court.

Murray is going from an offense in Detroit that used a lot of half court sets to one with the Pacers that emphasizes a transition game and the three-point shot.

It wouldn't be surprising if Murray is on the court late in the fourth quarter because the Pacers lack a player that wants to take the final shot when the game is on the line.

PACERS 128, BUCKS 106: Small forward Mike Dunleavy is finding his offensive rhythm at the right time.

Dunleavy matched his career high in points for the second straight game when he went off for 36 against Milwaukee. It's the third time this season that Dunleavy has 36 points in a game.

Dunleavy, who is averaging 27.8 points in the last six games, is in a groove just as the Pacers are trying to catch New Jersey for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The victory not only was the Pacers second straight for the first time since early February; it also got them to within 2 1/2 games of the Nets for the eighth seed in the East.

Shooting guard Danny Granger returned from his one-game suspension by scoring 28 points to go with nine rebounds and three assists.
