The Indiana Pacers host the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. As I mentioned in an earlier post, a few former Pacers will be in F-you mode as they return to face their former team.

So how will the Pacers respond? Are they going to let Darren Collison come in and make a point? Will they be able to shut up Dahntay Jones (actually, that may be impossible)? The Mavs don't have their star, Dirk Nowitzki so there's no solace in playing without Danny Granger.

The Mavs will have Shawn Marion back in the lineup after a knee injury sidelined the Matrix for five games. Still, the Pacers should be able to matchup and man up against the Mavs in front of the home crowd.

What kind of fight and what kind of pride does this Pacers team have to offer? We may find out tonight.
