The Indiana Pacers are back in action tonight for the first time since their thrilling win at the buzzer last Monday, hosting the Memphis Grizzliesat Conseco Fieldhouse.

It almost feels like the start of the season it's been so long since we've seen the Pacers in action, so I'm looking forward to this one tonight. Plus, Memphis is a team that can give the Pacers fits with a solid matchup at every position plus the wild card of Marion's Zach Randolph. Z-Bo can go off on you without notice and make for a long night.

Jeff Foster will have the initial task of dealing with Randolph which is a good thing since Foster should make him work on the glass as well as on offense. Another key for the Pacers is Roy Hibbert re-asserting himself in the post. Hopefully the extended break has helped Hibbert shed the struggles he's had of late so he can come out tonight and be a positive force in the middle.
