The Pacers reacquaint with some familiar faces when they face the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night in the second game of their current road trip.

Former Pacers Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee will be in the starting lineup where they have helped push the Suns to a strong first half of the season after being acquired for Luis Scola. It honestly seems strange to consider Plumlee's matchup with Roy Hibbert and Green's matchup with Lance Stephenson and Paul George as a serious factor in the outcome of the game tonight but that's where we are right now.

The Suns will also have recently-signed Leandro Barbosa off the bench, a favorite former Pacers player for anyone who covered the team during his short stay two years ago. The Blur was a fantastic team guy who could give a scoring burst off the bench, when he was healthy, and a quality quote after the game.

The Pacers, of course, hope to put their friends on the business end of their 34th win of the season. Keep Hibbert out of foul trouble and take care of the ball and that win should be in play. Hopefully, the action is as exciting as it was at Golden State which made it real easy to stay up for the late-night tip.
