Danny Granger Injury Update: Pacers Win Out For 2nd Half Of Game 5

The Miami Heat are pouring it on in the second half of Game 5 against the Pacers. The Heat came out in the second half and were running up-and-down on Indiana to quickly get out in front by 17 points.

The Pacers, however, are without their leading scorer, Danny Granger, who left the game late in the first half after spraining his ankle. Granger tried to return early in the third quarter but quickly aggravated the injury and reports came out that his night was over. It's a huge blow for Indiana, as the veteran wing has been a leader for his young upstart club as they try to upset the Heat. X-rays on Granger's ankle were negative but he was seen riding around the arena on a cart.
