The Indiana Pacers will try to stay hot on the road in the toasty environs of Phoenix when they take on the Suns on Saturday night.

If the Pacers bring an effort anywhere near the type the delivered in Houston and Dallas they likely won't get much resistance from Phoenix. While the Pacers are grinding in a battle for the number two spot in the East, the Suns are dinking around with a youth movement while showing little concern for late-season losses.

The Suns known for high effort - Dragic, P.J. Tucker, Luis Scola and Shannon Brown - have seen recent time reductions. Dragic sat out two games. Tucker did not play in a March 15 game when he was healthy. Scola averaged 13 minutes on a three-game trip that included his Houston homecoming. Brown logged eight minutes in a four-week span.

Among the key changes for the Suns of late has been an emphasis on playing rookie point guard Kendall Marshall instead of Goran Dragic. We'll see if Dragic gets some burn against the Pacers.

The Pacers continue to play with little margin for error as they try to earn the No. 2 spot in the East. The New York Knicks slipped back in front of the Pacers by percentage points when they beat the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday.
