The Indiana Pacers will have to put aside thoughts of vacation plans over the All-Star break and focus for 48 more minutes to really enjoy their break with a win over the Dallas Mavericks tonight.

Interesting matchups throughout the lineups tonight with a contrast in styles at shooting guard and power forward. George Hill will need to use his length to attack Jose Calderon at point guard. Calderon seems to always come up big against the Pacers, so if Hill can win that matchup the Pacers will be in good shape.

The Pacers catch the Mavs on the second half of a back-to-back although this time around it may not be a good thing. After winning five games in a row, the Mavs were throttled last night in Charlotte. So the bad loss will have the Mavs more focused tonight, plus the large deficit allowed Rick Carlisle to keep the minutes in check for his veteran players, so they should be feeling fine by tip time.
