The Pacers return to home to play the Minnesota at the Fieldhouse on Friday night.

Indiana and Minnesota are suddenly engaged in a professional hoops battle.

After the Indiana Pacers lost their preseason opener to the Minnesota Timberwolves in Fargo on Wednesday, the two teams will meet up again tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse for more preseason fine tuning.

Meanwhile, Tamika Catchings stepped up when Katie Douglas went down with an injury last night and helped the Indiana Fever cruise past the Connecitcut Sun, setting up a WNBA Finals series against the Minnesota Lynx. Congrats to the Fever for rallying past the Sun in impressive fashion. Certainly can't have enough championship caliber ball played at the Fieldhouse.

As for the Pacers, they showed off their new scoreboard to the media yesterday which you can read about in the links. Also, it appears George Hill will remain out with Danny Granger for the game tonight as he rests a thumb injury. David West is expected to play, though.
