The Indiana Pacers put their current four-game winning streak to the test tonight against the Utah Jazz.

There is no doubt that the Pacers will get the full attention of the Jazz since there is no lottery silver lining should they lose. In fact, Utah is engaged in a heated race for favorable playoff positioning. Their own three-game winning streak has drawn the Jazz into a virtual tie with Denver and Dallas for the 2-4 spots in the Western Conference playoff race. A 2 or 3 spot helps push the Lakers off until the Conference Finals, so every game is big for the Jazz these days.

Roy Hibbert remains questionable although with Mehmet Okur roaming around the arc, Josh McRoberts may be a better defensive matchup. Of course, the Pacers could always use Roy to their advantage at the other end in the post.
