And we'll be here to cover this stealth game while admittedly keeping an eye on the happenings at Lucas Oil Stadium. So drop by to catch up on the action during the monster NFL TV timeouts.
Needless to say, this will be a tough one for the Pacers. The Celtics are dealing with several injuries, most notably missing point guard Rajon Rondo, but the C's have still managed to rattle off 12 wins in a row. Today they are expected to be without Jermaine O'Neal, while other bigs Shaquille O'Neal and Semih Erden are game-time decisions, so this would be a great game for Roy Hibbert to come to play and come strong all day.
Hopefully the Pacers can take advantage of the hoops-biorhythym-altering matinée and catch the short-handed Celtics going through the motions expecting an easy win. Of course, that would require a solid effort from the Pacers and another good shooting
night day from Danny Granger, two things that have been in short supply lately, especially against better teams.
While there is no TV, Mark Boyle and Slick Leonard will be providing the HD visuals with their call on 93.1FM or NBA.com.
Here's the Pacers.com preview.
