The Indiana Pacers should be primed and ready to roll on Sunday night when they host the Charlotte Bobcats. Not only are they coming off a much-needed win over New Jersey, but they also had two full days off at home to get ready to go.

Slow starts have been a problem for the Pacers of late but a similar stagnant start tonight would really be a problem considering the circumstances and the matchup advantages the Pacers should have over the young Bobcats. Of course, last time the two teams played things didn't start so well for Indiana. Charlotte put up a 30-point first quarter with D.J. Augustin lighting up the Pacers from all over before things settled down. The Pacers held Charlotte to 28 second-half points to win 99-77.

The Pacers really toughened up in the prior meeting after Gerald Henderson flipped George Hill over his shoulder creating a testy exchange between the two. Both players are now trying to return to the court from injuries but are not expected to play.

Here is the preview. For a Charlotte perspective, check out Rufus On Fire. Also, after the game check out Pacers Overtime on WIBC 93.1FM with Eddie White. Need to have an Indy Cornrows mention on the show!
