The Indiana Pacers try for back-to-back wins against the New York Knickstonight when the two teams tangle at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Obviously, that won't be an easy task for the Pacers and there are a couple of disconcerting issues concerning Amare Stoudemire that the Pacers will have to overcome. First, Stoudemire has been stewing in the juices of Tyler Hansbrough getting the better of him for about 48 hours. No doubt he's heard that point made a few hundred times since the final buzzer on Sunday.

A highly motivated Stoudemire playing Conseco Fieldhouse is not a pretty thing for the home team. His annual trip to Indy while with the Suns produced some remarkable efforts including scoring games of 42 and 49 point when he simply couldn't miss. Inside or outside there was no defending the big fella. Hopefully the change in uniform will change his mojo in the Fieldhouse.

Here is the preview.
