The Indiana Pacers are in D.C. tonight to take on the Washington Wizards in the first of four games over the next five days. As the season rolls on, wins continue to become more and more valuable. With the resurgence of the New York Knicks and the Milwaukee Bucks the Pacers need to continue their season-long trend of taking care of wins against teams out of the playoff picture like the Wiz.
Nene Hilario has given the Wizards a jolt of energy so this isn't the same 11-34 team it was a week ago. But depth and defense should favor the Pacers. Roy Hibbert has struggled in his hometown before and with Nene in the middle he will be tested once again. After the bench has been so huge in the last two wins, it would be nice to see the starters carry the team to a win, wouldn't it?
