The Indiana Pacers pick themselves up off the canvas after getting knocked silly by Philly on Wednesday, to take on the Milwaukee Bucks tonight at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Bucks are dealing with their own early-season issues after an overtime loss at Boston on Wednesday dropped their record to 1-4. With the improvement of Roy Hibbert and addition of Darrren Collison I'm comfortable with the starters matching up pretty well. The Pacers second unit has struggled so far this season and needs to start establishing some consistency that doesn't lead to double-digit deficits in the second quarter.

The Bucks bring a couple of intriguing players off the bench with one of m favs, Ersan Ilyasova and athletic wing, Corey Maggette. Also, I don't ask for much, but I'd love to see about five minutes of Tyler Hansbrough-on-Jon Brockman crime on the court. Bodies could be flying like bowling pins.
