The Indiana Pacers wrap up the first third of the season tonight on the road at the Dallas Mavericks.

The Mavs have been dealing with some nagging injuries but appear to everyone except point guard Jason Kidd available tonight. Former Pacers coach Rick Carlisle was dinged $35,000 today for Nick Nolte-ing the ball in frustration during the Mavs loss to Oklahoma City on Wednesday. Well, it was a little less passive than Nolte, but Carlisle know you never want to involve fans in the stands with your frustrations.

The Pacers are riding high heading into Dallas which is never a good thing since they seem to play better when things don't appear to be going well. Also not good is the fact that George Hill and Jeff Foster remain out for the Pacers. The bench has bucked up in the past two wins and they'll need to help keep the Mavs on the run tonight since you know Jason Terry will be ready to go off the bench for Dallas.

Here is the preview. For a Dallas perspective, check out Mavs Moneyball. 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!
