The Pacers have plenty to give thanks for so far this season considering their 6-8 record with absolutely no thanks given to their depleted lineup, including an impressive win in Dallas on Monday evening. With Roy Hibbert out, beating the Mavericks seemed a tall task, which will be the same situation tonight against the defending champs.
Indiana's win in Dallas should keep the Spurs focused on their task tonight, which isn't a good thing either. It remains nearly impossible to look at the matchups and expect good things for the Pacers. Winning the effort game has made a big difference in Pacers wins, but the consistent effort and execution put forth by the Spurs is hard to bet against (assuming Coach Pop plays his veteran stars).
Last season, the Pacers played one of their best games of the year in San Antonio as they ran away from the Spurs before eventually winning, 111-100. That seems like a life time ago, and while the Spurs will have a similar starting lineup, not one of the starters in that game for the Pacers will be available this time around.
