Stack shows smarts by walking away

Jerry Stackhouse avoided a potential “situation” with Danny Granger on Friday when the Indiana swingman attempted to pick a fight. Stackhouse walked away from the confrontation smiling, while Granger picked up a technical.

“Stack probably early in the season probably would have took a shot at somebody, but we can’t afford to lose him right now,” Avery Johnson said. “We need to see how this starting lineup is going to continue to work for us, get settled into a bench rotation, so I was really proud of him during that time.

“It didn’t show that he was weak because he backed away from a fight. I thought he was smart.”
