The Indiana Pacers wrap up the regular season schedule on Wednesday night when they host the Chicago Bulls. When the schedule came out prior to the season, this final game looked like it might be a doozy but with both teams locked into their playoff spot there won't be a sense of urgency from either side.
The Bulls expect to play at full strength and the Pacers will player everyone sans Danny Granger, so natural competitive spirit between the teams should produce a good game, even if the eventual out come has little meaning.
The Pacers will also celebrate the ABA glory years bringing out the stars from the three championship teams of the early '70's while paying special tribute to Hall of Famer Mel Daniels. Get to the game early because fans will be able to greet the former players between 6:15 and 6:45 p.m. as they enter Bankers Life Fieldhouse from Pennsylvania Street on the Pacers Blue Carpet. Following the game, team members will be available for a special autograph session.
