The Indiana Pacers tip off their third preseason game tonight against the Dallas Mavericks in Texas. It's Indiana's first game on the road this preseason and it will mean equal rest for two of Indiana's starters, Roy Hibbert and George Hill. This will move Donald Sloan and Lavoy Allen into the starting lineup. Frank Vogel is also planning on starting Chris Copeland.

Vogel also plans on using a second unit of C.J. Watson, Ian Mahinmi, Luis Scola, and Rodney Stuckey. The Mavericks will see the return of Dirk Nowitzki tonight, though they'll continue to be short the services of Monta Ellis and will be without Raymond Felton for about 10 days with a high ankle sprain.
