Pacers Links: Pacers rest up for busy schedule to end week

USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers play three of four games on the road to close out the week

The Indiana Pacers are in the midst of a pair of off days after winning back-to-back games on Friday (Philadelphia) and Saturday (at Detroit).

Paul George and George Hill need the rest after playing heavy minutes to help secure the W's as the Pacers prepare for a stretch of four games in five days to finish the week. Three of those games are on the road starting on Tuesday with a key Central Division matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Pacers finish the week with games at home on Wednesday against the Utah Jazz and then on the road at the Cleveland Cavaliers and New Orleans Hornets on Friday and Saturday. With the scheduled strengthening following Christmas Day the Pacers need to take advantage of this week's game. All of these games could go either way depending on which Pacers team shows up, but taking three of four would be a nice way to enjoy a few more days off.

As of Saturday, the Pacers roster is nearly all available for trades. Aside from George Hill and Roy Hibbert, the other players signed in the offseason are now eligible to be traded, including D.J. Augustin and Gerald Green. Of course, at this point, the Pacers would be selling low, rock-bottom low in the case of Augustin, so the Pacers would surely rather try to get Augustin's game going as opposed to moving him for next to nothing.
