INDIANAPOLIS, March 15 (UPI) -- Danny Granger drained a game-winning jump shot in the final second Tuesday, boosting the Indiana Pacers to a 119-117 victory over New York.

Granger shook off Shawne Williams and nailed a 17-footer with 0.3 seconds left, enabling the Pacers to break a six-game losing streak. The decisive shot came 7 seconds after Carmelo Anthony had tied the score 117-117 with a clutch layup.

Tyler Hansbrough pumped in a career-high 30 points, Granger netted 26 and Darren Collison contributed 24 for Indiana.

Anthony ended up with 29 points and nine rebounds and Amare Stoudemire provided 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Knicks.
