Open Game Thread #64: Pacers vs. Supersonics

After dropping three straight games on the road, the Indiana Pacers return home tonight take on the Seattle Supersonics. With 19 games remaining, tonight's game is the first of 15 games against teams that join the Pacers with a sub-.500 record. As my pal coachK pointed out, the Pacers have the most favorable schedule of any of the Eastern Conference teams in the picture for the final playoff spot.

Here's Bruno's Scouting Report which looks at the Pacers' recent struggles on the glass. In the last three games, opponents have grabbed 48 offensive rebounds. Yikes!
