The Indiana Pacers take on the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in a clash between two teams headed in opposite directions.
At 4-25 the Wizards are simply struggling while waiting for John Wall to return from injury. With A.J. Price nursing a broken hand the Wizards are on at least their fourth starting point guard already this season (including Wall) with Garrett Temple now starting. Former Butler star Shelvin Mack started a couple of games after joining the Wiz around Christmas and remains a part of the playing rotation off the bench.
The Pacers are 8-2 in their last ten games yet after watching the loss in Atlanta it is hard to say Indiana is one of the hottest teams in the league. They have certainly taken advantage of their schedule but are coming off a great win over a strong Memphis team on Monday.
Speaking of point guards, George Hill will be a game-time decision after he tries to give it a go while recovering from a right thigh injury.
