After a tough loss to Orlando last night, the Pacers have to fire up for a challenging road game against Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat. Wade is a nightmare matchup and should keep Marquis Daniels, Jarrett Jack and Brandon Rush busy all night. The key is not to let any of his teammates loose.
As always, if the Pacers take care of the ball they should have a good shot at the road win.
Here are the Pacers.com matchups.

I asked him recently if he's taken any steps toward his return and his response was, "I'd call it more like a half step." That's not a good sign. Dunleavy's workouts has been relatively the same the past few weeks. He does strength and conditioning work on the side while watching his teammates practice. He takes the court afterwards and goes through shooting drills.
