The Indiana Pacers host the Boston Celticstonight at Conseco FIeldhouse with both teams looking to improve their level of play.

The Celtics arrive struggling of late, which for the C's means they are 5-5 in their last 10 games, failing to score more than 100 points in any of those games. In fact, they've only score more than 90 points in two of those contests including their 92-80 win over the Pacers on March 16th.

Rajon Rondo has been the focal point of the struggling offensive production. The point guard is dealing with a pinkie injury that kept him out of the C's win last night in Minnesota and has him listed as day-to-day for tonight's game. Delonte West will likely step into the starting lineup if Rondo is a scratch.

The Pacers really need to focus on what they have to do to compete for a win. Same story, different night. Play well and play together and the Pacers will be in position to win at the end of the game. Winning and being in position to win are different things, but first thing is first. The Pacers will have to find some answers for the defense that stymied a pretty good effort by the Pacers in their last meeting in Boston.

Here is the preview.
