The Indiana Pacers tip off a three-game stretch in California tonight when they face the Sacramento Kings.

The Pacers begin a phase of their schedule that should determine just how good this team is and if there is some substance to the early season success. Starting tonight, the Pacers play six of their next seven games on the road and they will need to rely on another strong defensive effort to keep the Kings from amping things up for some home cooking.

The Kings have tons of young talent that is trying to find their way after dispatching of former coach Paul Westphal early in the season. Indiana Hoosier legend Keith Smart seems to have their attention but the team is still 2-5 since Smart took over. Of course, the Kings have been navigating a harsh stretch in the schedule with their last five games on the road. Hard to imagine they won't be on point on their home court.

Here is the Pacers.com preview. For a Sacramento perspective, check out Sactown Royalty. Also, after the game check out Pacers Overtime on WIBC 93.1FM with Eddie White. Need to have an Indy Cornrows mention on the show!
