Open Game Thread #70: Pacers at Bulls

The Indiana Pacers are in Chicago tonight for a critical game against the Bulls in the race crawl for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Pacers are 1-2 against the Bulls so far this year and 0-1 since the Bulls' roster-altering trade in February. Kirk Hinrich missed the last game for the Bulls, but he may wake up feeling good today remembering that the last time the Pacers were in Chicago, he dropped 38 on them.

Hopefully, the Pacers packed a few left over 3-balls from last night's incredible shooting performance. I'm going to have to watch this one after the fact, once again. Let's hope it is worth watching.
