Darren Collison, Mike Dunleavy out
INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Pacers were without starters Darren Collison and Mike Dunleavy when they defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 107-80 on Thursday night.
Collison missed his second straight game with a sprained ankle. Coach Jim O'Brien says Collison's injury is more severe than originally thought, but shouldn't keep him out much longer.
T.J. Ford started in Collison's place Thursday night, posting 11 points and five assists in 27 minutes.
Dunleavy missed the game because his wife is in labor. Brandon Rush replaced him in the lineup, scoring 14 points and blocking five shots.
Clippers center Chris Kaman missed his fifth straight game with a sprained left ankle, and guard Baron Davis missed his fifth in a row with a sore left knee.
