The Indiana Pacers mucked up their manhood game last night so they have another one on Thursday night with the New Jersey Nets visit Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Nets are the rare NBA team struggling more than the Pacers, having lost seven consecutive games. Despite the losing, Deron Williams has been a monster and will draw plenty of attention from the Pacers defense. Although, with the effectiveness of the Pacers defense lately, that shouldn't worry Williams too much. But the opportunity is there for the Pacers to find that defensive edge that produced big wins earlier in the season.

Jeff Foster should be available and Danny Granger will be a game-time decision. Brooke Lopez, Jordan Farmar and Shawne Williams are all out for the Nets.

Here is the Pacers.com preview. For a New Jersey perspective, check out Nets Daily. Also, after the game check out Pacers Overtime on WIBC 93.1FM with Eddie White. Need to have an Indy Cornrows mention on the show!
