The Indiana Pacers have a huge "now what?" game tonight when they face the Charlotte Bobcats.

After a tough loss last night in Miami, the Pacers face a Bobcats team that, much like themselves, has benefitted from a coaching change that loosened up the reins on the players and made them dangerous. Since the Pacers have already beaten Charlotte twice this year, they can secure the tie-breaker with a win tonight.

But more importantly, the Pacers can show they are indeed going to keep getting up when knocked down and continue battling for wins. Charlotte beat Boston on Monday even with Stephen Jackson getting tossed early after a couple of T's, so they will be trying to build up some positive momentum after stumbling a bit of late.

Here is the preview.
