The Pacers could sure use a boost on the offensive end but more importantly they need a boost in the win column. The game against the Clippers marks the ninth game in a nine-game stretch against challenging competition following a six-game winning streak by the Pacers over weaker teams. Well, the Pacers are 2-6 through the first eight which is a disappointing development, so shaking up the roster and rotation by adding Barbosa couldn't come at a better time. The Clippers are trying to get things rolling themselves with plenty of talent to throw at the Pacers so the home team will need a strong effort to give themselves a chance to win.
