The Indiana Pacers host the Golden State Warriors tonight with Mark Jackson calling the shots from the bench for the Dubs.

The Pacers have big plans for the remainder of the season but they have never done well looking ahead so hopefully they are focused on keeping the combustible Warriors in check to deliver a win. Before the game, Jackson ruled out Stephen Curry with lingering ankle issues, so the Pacers have that going for them.

This is an insane night of hoops in the state of Indiana, by the way. The Pacers are sharing the court, if you will, with Big Ten-leading Michigan State visiting IU, while Butler opens up Horizon League tournament play at Hinkle Fieldhouse against Wright State. Then there is the start of sectional play in the high school tournament, including what might be the best game of the night with North Central and Hamilston SE meeting in the Noblesville Sectional. Wow!

Here is the preview. For a New Orleans perspective, check out At The Hive. 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!
