Izod Center
Radio: 1070AM WFNI TV: Fox Sports Indiana
Probable starters:
T.J. Ford PG Keyon Dooling
Marquis Daniels SG Vince Carter
Danny Granger SF Bobby Simmons
Jeff Foster PF Yi Jianlian
Rasho Nesterovic C Josh Boone

UPDATE: Keep an eye on Bruno's Live Blog during the game.

The Indiana Pacers visit the New Jersey Nets tonight looking for their first road win just four nights after beating the Nets back in Indy.

For the Nets, starting PG, Devin Harris is expected to remained sidelined with a bum ankle.

Rasho Nesterovic will return to the lineup for the Pacers tonight which should be a boost for the front court considering Troy Murphy stayed in Indy to recover from a stomach virus. The Game Matchups at Pacers.com has Rasho starting at center tonight with Jeff Foster at forward for Murph. Mike Dunleavy remains suited and booted with his lingering knee drama.

Considering the unknown player availability and playing a team for a second time in five days, this game sets up as a loss waiting to happen. It also sets up as a great opportunity for the Pacers to flash some mental toughness and roster depth to gut out a road W. Facing this re-tooled Nets team at this points of the season makes this a winnable game, so the Pacers have to push aside the excuses and just win it.
