The Indiana Pacers hit the road tonight to take on the Milwaukee Bucks a team that always seems to frustrate the Pacers. This season's version of the Bucks have been the anti-Raptors, doing their best work at the defensive end while dropping near the bottom of the league in the offensive rankings.

The Bucks have struggled out of the gate and the up and down play of John Salmons is one reason. In the win over the Pacers earlier this year, the Bucks found a boost from Corey Maggette off the bench, so consider containing the wing players a key for the Pacers tonight. Brandon Rush may get the start to check Salmons, although Danny Granger could start out on him should Dunleavy start.

As for the Pacers, finding an offensive flow will be key and that means finding a hot hand or two from three-land on a ice cold night in Milwaukee.

Here's the preview.
