In their first trip to the Bradley Center the Pacers did not fare well, dropping one of a handful of losses that didn't go down to the final buzzer. In fact, the Pacers had to rally late just to make the 99-85 final score look reasonable. The Pacers appear to be a much stronger team this time around with several players stepping up and asserting themselves in leading roles over the past few weeks.
Paul George, George Hill and David West have all been rock solid in leading the Pacers to a 7-3 record in their last 10 games. In the early TKO at Milwaukee in November, the whole starting lineup combined scored just 33 points.
The Bucks will be hungry to win at home after they snapped a four-game winning streak in a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers in their last game. Slowing down the combustible duo of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis will be a primary concern for the Pacers.
