The Indiana Pacers will try to continue their winning ways tonight against Stephen Jackson and the Charlotte Bobcats. The Pacers already have the tie-break with the Bobcats but a win could give them even more wiggle room for the final playoff spot.
The Pacers need to get off to a good start and kill any hope the Bobcats have of a win. They did a great job last week starting off strong, but struggled Monday against the Derron Williams-less New Jersey Nets. No need to put yourself in a hole and have to fight your way back (easier said than done with this team).
