Finally healthy, the Kings travel to Indiana

Jan 19, 2008 - 3:53 PM Sacramento (16-22) at Indiana (18-22) 7:00 pm EST

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) - Perhaps no team has been hit harder by injuries this season than the Sacramento Kings. But that's not an excuse anymore.

The healing Kings will look to make it two wins in a row when they visit the Indiana Pacers on Saturday.

Mike Bibby, Kevin Martin and Ron Artest - Sacramento's top three scorers last season - took the court together for just the second time this season on Friday. All three came off the bench for the second straight game and combined for 58 points.

The three stars led the Kings to a 99-93 victory at Detroit. Sacramento shot 51 percent (36-of-71) in the victory while going 21-of-26 from the free throw line.

The Kings should be a stiff test for the Pacers.

Indiana is coming off a 125-117 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday in which they overcame a 17-point deficit with a 46-point fourth quarter. Danny Granger scored 29 points and Mike Dunleavy added 24 in the win.

The highest scoring team in the Eastern Conference at 103.7 points per game, the Pacers have gone over 100 points in each of their last four games. Dunleavy leads the team at 17.5 per game and is in the midst of his finest season as an NBA player.

Dunleavy scored 23 points on January 12 at Sacramento to lead Indiana to a 111-105 victory in the first meeting between the teams.
