The Indiana Pacers face a strong test on Monday afternoon when they host the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies and Pacers are currently the top two teams in the NBA in defensive efficiency so finding ways to score will be critical for the Pacers in a game with some intriguing matchups. First you have the Indy point guard matchup with George Hill and Mike Conley renewing acquaintances. David West will have his hands full with Zach Randolph down on the block and of course Paul George will need to slow down Rudy Gay.

But another matchup to keep an eye on is Tony Allen and Lance Stephenson. Allen doesn't mind mucking things up with opponents so I can imagine he will try to get Stephenson out of his game by stirring things up and trying to provoke a reaction. Oh yeah, and if Hibbert can play Gasol close to even the Pacers will be in good shape.
