The Indiana Pacers had a chance to catch their breath, practice and actually prepare for the Charlotte Hornets as one of just two games this week at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The time off added Rodney Stuckey to the list of available players, but the Pacers remain short-handed with George Hill, David West, C.J. Watson, C.J. Miles and, of course, Paul George sidelined with injuries.


The Hornets arrive at BLF with the same record as the Pacers (4-7) as they try to mix and match a few new (and young) faces with plenty of playoff potential. Lance Stephenson (you may recognize the name) will command plenty of attention both on the court and in the stands as the former Pacers guard makes his first return to his first NBA team. But the Hornets' reserve unit will have familiar faces, as well with former IU stars, Cody Zeller and Noah Vonleh.


The biggest matchup involves none of the above, though. Roy Hibbert finding a way to neutralize Al Jefferson to some degree has been a big problem in the past and remains the key, again tonight for the Pacers.
