The Indiana Pacers hit the Bay Area on Friday night to resume their road trip against the Golden State Warriors. Both teams suffered tough road losses on Wednesday so there will be no short supply of motivation to win this one.

Former Pacers legend Mark Jackson has already made an impact on the Warriors in his first coaching gig, doing his best to add a little defensive edge to the formerly fast-paced offensive attack. The Dubs remain a work in progress, currently 26th in the league in defensive efficiency but they do count impressive wins over Chicago and Miami among their five W's so far this season showing they have the firepower to take down the league's elite on any night.

The Pacers need to get back to focusing on executing their game plan and working that plan for 48 minutes. The "Breakdown in Sactown" was due in large part to the Pacers straying from their strengths and then being unable to find that groove that had them rolling through three quarters. In other words, if the game has yet to be decided, David West should be on the court in the final three minutes.
