The Indiana Pacers beat the Milwaukee Bucks for their third straight win before making the short trip to Chicago for their game tonight against the Bulls.

The current win streak has pushed the Pacers to a six game lead over the Bulls in the Central Division but in the race for second place in the Eastern Conference, the recent wins have merely helped the Pacers hang on to their spot in the East. The New York Knicks won the first game of a home-and-home with the Toronto Raptors on Friday to win their third consecutive game, as well.

The Pacers will need to lean on their depth again since David West won't be in Chicago while taking care of his lower back sprain. Tyler Hansbrough had another big night (22 and 12) in a starting role against the Bucks while the rest of his crew off the bench added 38 points.
