The Indiana Pacers begin a four game in five night stretch on Tuesday night when they host the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Bucks have some intriguing young talent starting with second overall pick in the last draft, Jabari Parker. The small forward is getting the minutes and shots needed to groom him into a Melo-esque scorer in the league. He's just needs more time to prove capable.

O.J. Mayo was in that spot a few years ago and never made the leap. Now Mayo, a two-time target of Larry Bird, appears to have accepted his role off the bench and stopped super-sizing his meals. Mayo is playing for a contract and started strong with 17 and 25 points in his first two games. He followed that up with a 1 for 7 game and three points against Washington, but through three games Mayo is 8 for 15 from 3-land so he isn't passing up any shots.

Big man Larry Sanders won't have David West to run away from when he tries to get chesty, as always seems to be the case when Sanders is at the Fieldhouse. Zaza Pachulia and Sanders have each given Roy Hibbert fits in the past, so the Big Dawg will have to rise up and play well for the Pacers to do the same.
