The Indiana Pacers take on the Utah Jazz tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. It will mark the first time this season that the Pacers have played consecutive home games. The Pacers will also try to avoid losing two games in a row for the first time this season. One "first" is enough for one evening, don't you think?

The Jazz arrive struggling of late having lost three of their last four games. Their active front court with Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap will be a challenge for the Pacers. Plus, second-year power forward Derrick Favors remains inconsistent but has improved his game quite a bit since his rookie season providing some depth off the bench.

Roy Hibbert is due for a big game after struggling with foul trouble against Dwight Howard on Saturday. All of the Pacers struggled to a certain extent against the Magic but should be fresh and ready to go tonight.

Here is the Pacers.com preview. For an Orlando perspective, check out SLC Dunk. 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!
