Pacers Set To Return To Action In New Orleans

The Indiana Pacers are finally back in action on Saturday night, set to play just their second game in the past ten days thanks to a schedule break and the All-Star break bumping into each other.

The Pacers needed overtime to beat the Hornets just before the All-Star break. If you recall, Frank Vogel had to lean on his starters to get it done in that game, playing them extensive minutes to earn the W. The Hornets have been playing without Emeka Okafor or reserve forward Carl Landry which gave the Pacers an advantage on offense in the paint.

While the Pacers are rested and ready to go, the Hornets will be playing their fourth game this week on a back-to-back after putting up a nice win on Friday night over the Dallas Mavericks. Even more impressive when you consider that Trevor Ariza also missed the game for the Hornets. New Orleans would really miss Ariza if he remains sick against the Pacers since he did a nice job of defending Danny Granger in the last game.

I'm on the road, struggling with some technical difficulties, so here is a link for the day, a story on Paul George from Mike Wells. Feel free to help me out and add any other interesting linksn the comments.
