This will be the fourth game in five days for the Pacers. It only feels like five weeks, since all three losses included double-digit deficits throughout much of the second half. Steve Nash is hurting for the Suns but he'll need to play tonight since backup PG Goran Dragic is out with an ankle sprain.
Back in mid-January the Pacers put together one of their best halves of the season, working their way back from a huge deficit to beat the Suns at the Fieldhouse, 122-114. Danny Granger and Mike Dunleavy combined for 63 points. Considering the way Dunleavy has struggled of late, that doesn't seem possible, nor simply seven weeks ago. Like last night in Denver, 120 points is a good benchmark for the Pacers tonight if they want a chance to win this one.
