The summer Pacers are back in action tonight at 7:00PM when they take on the practice-jersey Boston Celtics. Here's a closer look at the summer C's. I was really looking forward to watching Lester Hudson but he broke a finger and left Orlando.
Should be interesting to see if the young Pacers group can keep their nose to the grindstone for a fourth consecutive night. Dante & Galante will be
calling the action yuckin' it up so tune in at Pacers.com or Magic's summer league site and drop in some comments for those who can't.
After the jump, some links of interest including some great local interviews:
