The Indiana Pacers look to push their current winning streak to five games when they host the Golden State Warriors at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Forward Danny Granger will be suited and booted and ready to play off the bench at home for the first time this season.
The Warriors with coach Mark Jackson arrive in Indy on a three-game winning streak of their own, pushing back with a few W's after losing six straight. Jax has helped instill some toughness in this group but they still have the offensive burst to cause problems, averaging over 101 points per game. They shoot roughly the same numbers of threes as the Pacers (19.7 per game) but are among the league leaders in 3-point FG percentage.
The Pacers lead the league in defending the three, so how well they slow down Stephen Currry, Klay Thompson and ol' friend Jarret Jack from behind the arc will go a long way to determining the outcome of this one.
