The Indiana Pacers return home to play the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night looking to snap a disappointing four-game losing streak and bounce back from a dispirited performance in Orlando. Simple pride should be enough to motivate the Pacers to bring a strong effort tonight after looking at the mess they left in Orlando.

Waaayyy back before the current four-game losing streak (nine whole days) altered the mood around the Fieldhouse, the Pacers were coming off of a six-game winning streak and facing a difficult nine-game stretch against playoff caliber teams.

Or so it appeared.

Now the New York Knicks have lost six-straight games and while they remain in playoff contention, the Knicks are now six games under .500 and tied with Milwaukee for the 8th spot in the East. The Trail Blazers have been struggling as well, dealing with trade rumors and struggling on offense to go 2-4 in their last six games.

Portland still has plenty of potent players if you catch them on the wrong night and which may be tonight. The Blazers will be playing the fourth game of a seven-game road trip, but they have had two full days off to prepare for the Pacers. Should be a good game tonight with no lack of motivation for either team.
