The Indiana Pacers hit the road to face the New Orleans Hornets tonight at the New Orleans Arena.

Intensity should not be a problem for either team. The Pacers control their playoff destiny but still have work to do with just five games to play. The Hornets in good shape to make the playoffs, but currently sit as the 8th seed in the West, but are only one game behind Portland for the 6th seed.

The last time these two teams played we were treated to an epic finish when Mike Dunleavy tipped (and by tip I mean the very end of his finger tip) in the game-winning points at the buzzer. One of the few bright spots from an otherwise dreary December.

David West is out for the Hornets so we'll see plenty of former Purdue forward, Carl Landry.

Here is the preview.
