The Indiana Pacers finish up their two-game roadie tonight when they take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Ford Center. The Thunder boast and exciting young team headlined by Kevin Durant that has made a statement so far this season as a bona fide playoff team in the Western Conference, looking to mix it up with Houston, New Orleans, Utah and Memphis for the final two spots in the West.

The Pacers have to bounce back after a tough loss in Minneapolis last night despite the return of Danny Granger and Troy Murphy. Unfortunately the Pacers couldn't keep it together for 48 minutes highlighted by a five minutes stretch in the third quarter when the Timberwolves outscored the blue and gold 17-0. The Pacers aren't good enought to withstand that big a lapse. Once again, they'll need to take advanatage of all 48 minutes tonight to sneak a road win out of Oklahoma City.
