Open Game Thread #81: Pacers at Wizards

The Indiana Pacers are in Washington tonight with their playoff hopes on life support. A loss pulls the plug for good. According to Mike Wells, Jeff Foster tweaked a knee late in Saturday's game and won't be available tonight. Also, J.O. has been hit with the stomach virus that ran through the team on Friday so his status is unclear.

Here's Bruno's Scouting Report which tells us, if J.O can go, he may be available to play more than the 20 minutes he's been limited to since his return.

For a great Wizards perspective, check out Bullets Forever.

Here's what the efficiency numbers say:

Team Pace Off.Eff. Def.Eff.
IND 95.9(3rd) 107.7(18th) 108.9(15th)
WAS 88.3(27th) 110.4(12th) 111.1(21st)

Projected Starters
Mike Dunleavy F Caron Butler
Jermaine O'Neal F Antawn Jamison
Troy Murphy C Brendan Haywood
Danny Granger G Antonio Daniels
Flip Murray G DeShawn Stevenson
