It wasn't that long ago -- three weeks to be exact -- that Indiana Pacers small forward Danny Granger had the undistinguished honor of sitting at the bottom of the league in field goal percentage.

Granger is doing his best to make that a distant memory while helping the Pacers win games.

He didn't let Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love slow him down Wednesday night. Granger, inspired by a skirmish with Love, continued his recent surge with a season-high 36 points to help the Pacers beat the Timberwolves 109-99 at the Target Center.
