No hype needed for this one. The Indiana Pacers visit the Chicago Bulls at the United Center -- enough said.

The Pacers beat the Bulls 95-90 in their last visit to the UC in late January which caught Chicago's attention and will have them primed and ready to take down the Pacers tonight. Starting forward Luol Deng did not play in the first game but he will be in the starting lineup tonight. If you recall, Ronnie Brewer made up for Deng's absence with a monster first half and finished the game with 20 points.

But this is a whole new ball game tonight. Can't wait to see how the Pacers react to the level of intensity ramping up in the UC. The Pacers will be without Jeff Foster for the game as he's expected to miss the games tonight and on Tuesday with his balky lower back.
