The Indiana Pacers at the Los Angeles Lakers. A huge game on the schedule for the Pacers, business as usual for the Lakers. Those are the facts, but they will play 48 minutes tonight and the Pacers can put themselves in position to win if they take care of their own business. Front-court matchups with McRoberts and Hibbert trying to neutralize Odom and Gasol will be the first indication of how this game will go.

Jim O'Brien mentioned earlier this week that he planned to start Brandon Rush on Kobe Bryant to give the Pacers a more athletic defense against the Lakers' starters. Goes without saying that Kobe can take over the game even if the Pacers bring their best. But that's what should make this one fun to watch.
