The Indiana Pacers found plenty of live practice time for their young players last night including second-year forward Tyler Hansbrough who found a little success late in the game that he can build on going into tonight's game at Houston.
There will be more minutes available for Hansbrough tonight, since Josh McRoberts did not make the trip with the team. While fouling Dwight Howard last night, McRoberts took a shot to the head that strained his neck and will keep him sidelined tonight.
After the jump, plenty of links from last night's loss to the Magic.
