The Indiana Pacers are back in action tonight at Conseco Fieldhouse when they host the Detroit Pistons.

The Pistons ran past the Pacers this past Saturday night and have been off ever since waiting for the re-match tonight. Meanwhile, the Pacers were able to get back on the winning track by beating the Boston Celtics on Monday.

The Pacers need to avenge Saturday's loss to remain in control of their playoff hopes and that will mean bringing the effort and execution they trotted out at the Fieldhouse on Monday.

Despite the tough year for Detroit, they always seem to bring out their best for the Pacers. Whether it's Tayshaun Prince, Ben Gordon, Charlie Villanueva or Rodney Stuckey the Pistons always find a source of offense to give the Pacers fits. Just have to hope the Pacers show up in winning form tonight.

Speaking of showing up, Mike Dunleavy is expected to return to the court tonight after suiting up for Monday's game. All reports from practice yesterday were positive, so it will be interesting to see where Dunleavy fits into the rotation.

Here is the preview.
