Open Game Thread #15: Pacers at Nuggets

The Pacers are in Denver tonight to take on Carmelo Anthony, Allen Iverson and the rest of the Nuggets. Well, according to Bruno's Scouting Report the Nuggs could be short some vital front court compliments to Marcus Camby. Stephen Hunter and Nene Hilario (sorry, this guy hasn't earned one name status with me yet) are out. Kenyon Martin had his knee checked out and the results came back with good news, but he's still questionable heading into the game and not expected to play. 3-balling forward, Linas Kleiza is nursing a sprained ankle and will be a game-time decision.

Speaking of questionable, Jermaine O'Neal's status won't be known until tip time. Reports of his availability for tonight's game were a bit pre-mature since his balky knee truly requires day-to-day assessment. Since O'B declares defense the key to winning consistently, it would sure be nice to have J.O. helping out around the hoop.
