The Indiana Pacers welcome the Washington Wizards to Conseco Fieldhouse tonight, looking to gather some positive momentum and move closer to the playoffs.

For the most part, the Wizards are young, dumb and ready to gun which makes them dangerous considering the Pacers can struggle to defend such an attack. The Wiz have won four of their last five including doing the Pacers a favor over the weekend by beating Charlotte.

Also, a familiar name to many, Jordan Crawford has been starting of late and, speaking of ready to gun, been getting up his share of shots. In the 12 games he's started, Crawford has averaged 22.1 points on 20.8 field goal attempts per game. How sweet is that? Now that's why they call the position, shooting guard. It takes Paul George three or four games to squeeze of 21 shots.

Here is the preview.
